dirty hands

what

what can i do

with all this – what

what can i touch

after all this what

what do you want me to say

that i’m sorry

and i’ll be sorry when i do it again

and then

i’ll be sorry when i do it again

or

that i’m afraid

i can’t touch holy things

anything pure soft or clean

because i am filth

i am filthy

don’t worry with that

he said kneeling down

taking my filth hand

placing it on his crown

do you feel that

cold smooth angles

gold through fire

do you want that

or do you want what

to tell me you’re sorry

and you’ll be sorry when you do it again

or do you want

cold smooth angles

gold through fire

i looked at my hands

still filthy

still shaking

but i could feel

the

cold smooth angles

i could feel

the

gold through fire

i could feel

my hands shaking

as i rose from whatever

into whatever is waiting
