then enter the stone church studio

my muse

no,

i want to turn to
charcoal with you
burn down to ash together,
and be presented to
God as one
spirit.

in

life,

i wish to share our sufferings
breaking
compassion
into
true form.

in love,

i wish to hold you and sleep –

dance on wine
and sing
in sunrises
that
reflects our age and highlights
the course changes
we’ve made each decade
while
pointing towards the north-west
direction
which keeps the wagon
wheel

rolling.
