Remember whatever pain you bring back
from your dreaming
but do not look for new gods
in the sea
nor in any part of a rainbow
Each time you love
love as deeply as if it were
only nothing is

'For Each of You', Audre Lorde

The birds they sang
at the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don't dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.

'Anthem', Leonard Cohen

When I wake, I lift cold water
To my face. I close my eyes.
A body wishes to be held, and held, and what
Can you do about that?

'In the City of Light', Larry Levis
