a scalding fever of hope appears

strong like coffee in the hand of an early morning sipper

drink freely and let down slowly

keep your heart wide open and repair your walls

mend the breaks in the windowsill

clean the glass and hold the candle up tight and taught

to watch the embers glow like a mirror back at you

there is a voice with fire like a dragon and with teeth like a serpent

it tells you to spend your oil and water and to use the breaking pots

keep your best hidden

well there was wine given freely and bread extended to anyone who would reach

there was no holding back for the one who deserved it

come buy bread without price and find it from a hand that extends lavishly

why do you hold back?

come. come.
