RECREATING A MIRACULOUS OBJECT

 

 

When I was a boy I was made

Entirely of salt

 

Silent with the silence of adoration

For what had come

 

Before me

 

Like a father

 

In the belly of a great whale

I lived in myself

 

Waiting to be

Illuminated by your arrival

 

 

At night I pray

For glaciers of salt

 

Now I wait

I have waited

I will wait

 

I eat your footsteps in my sleep

I wake from my animal dream a legend
