we are a child.

[13 May 2009, when our marriage was just newborn]

this skin is all i have
to cover all i have.  it is enough,
but barely and your touch seers
it to joy and irritates my
wounds.  sometimes i cry.
who could know skin and
spirit and soul could be so
relentlessly united, so
fiercely wedded -
and now yours with mine.

we are two, and we are one.

[the Whole One (Alive and Laughing)
will uncover us and
baptize us and bury us and
call us up again.]

we are children.
we are a child.
