The Rivers I Have Hidden From The Sea / 2011

An Absolom, Not An Abraham, Am I

Swallowed the endless sands
for a son.

The deserts of my dreams
run wild with the rivers I have waded,

by surviving
cancerous light
carried from another corner
of a universe unaware
I am holding him up
not in sacrifice,
but in adulation.

An Absolom, not an Abraham,
am I.
