pumping liquid life and profound love.
And when you leave
with each deployment
it seizes all control,
expands to ridges, peaks of sandstone,
valleys dark and deep.
This tiny chest explodes,
emits an elemental something
that floats across oceans,
and overhead your head.
In heat, find comfort in its shadow,
in cold, warmth from its great size
while I, carved, cool, and shivering
blink winds to keep it far.
