Mass of shoulders touching

Tenderly webbed in love

Ugly shadows and dark masters fold at the knees and cower
and are cramped
and are crowded out

Hearts and limbs bend
Souls refract and stretch in rebirth
New particles emerge as light

And harmonic chords of voice
and affirmation
And forgiveness unfold

Beauty flickers from the vessels we know as bodies

And hand to hand
and shoulder
make new a lovely landscape
