take this with you

                a slice of last night’s dream, a snatch

                of conversation from table, the words

                you read over and over before falling

                into another day. we send you

dancing away with this


under twisted branches of oak, down

forbidden alleys, across avenues

a million shards of stars embedded in asphalt

you will find those who teach us


                compassion, give us the bread

                we are sent to serve
