“If anyone asks you
how the perfect satisfaction
of all our sexual wanting
will look, lift your face
and say,

Like this.

When someone quotes the old poetic image
about clouds gradually uncovering the moon,
slowly loosen knot by knot the strings
of your robe

Like this.

If anyone wonders how Jesus raised the dead,
don’t try to explain the miracle.
Kiss me on the lips

Like this. Like this.”


“I look to her in the simplest, smallest moments- when she reads or drinks her coffee or brushes her teeth and I am breathless – knowing it does not take a million dollar telescope to witness the crushing beauty of the universe.”

Live a lifetime in a moment.
