If Our Time Will Come

God & Man

If our time will come
if
rings
all of the other words disappear
all of them
the stamps lying downstairs for Stockholm
my black wool sweater
and green army jacket
that I am packing if you arise
disappear
the
oh, I guess I might need to make that appointment when I am in Europe
disappears
the dream of you walking up my steps
into a bed that full of afternoon sunshine
and my brown skin from napping
disappears
you are living in a world that does not contain the flesh of me
the heart of me
the meat of my thighs and smile and laugh
you speak in tongue
when I want you to say
I’ve got you
I’m here
you don’t have me
you are living in clouds
and I am in the ocean
you are speaking to the wind
I am speaking to fish. TC mark
