Remember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.

God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.

Remember what you love.

Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.

Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.

Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.

I read this as a great big yearn and monstrous sorrow. Well done.

I've been shanghai'd by life lately and away from here;
But all the good things people say about you and have been saying about this are true.

Well it's very nice of Life to let you off tether long enough
to come say lovely things.

omg. so well deserved ! congratulations.

i think my favourite part is this :

Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
