prose poetry and fiction

the glory

we set out for nothing but still arrive with a harvest
 to the pomegranate tree of our house in the city
 when it is full of fruit
 i will eat with you and we will hold each other as a sacrament
 until our tongues are filled with honey
 we will be young as the wind blowing through the garden
 as we are when we dream of one another
 and you will kiss me until my teeth are stained with the sweetness of the earth
