Black Earth Song

mine are the rainbow arms
           of the horizon      around you
stroking you forward
      to the center             of the sky

out of the desert
          the arctics        the seas
the beds of anything
          you are on

mine are the arms
         the ends
of all the earth          you need
         I am                  for you.
