Magdalene Poem

Love enters the body 

enters 
almost 
almost completely breaks and enters into the body 

already beaten and broken 

peaceful if breaking if breaking 
and entering the already broken is peaceful 

untouchable fortunately 
untouchable.

Little Ending

Bowls will receive us,
                                        and sprinkle black scratch in our eyes.
Later, at the great fork on the untouchable road,
It won't matter where we have become.

Unburdened by prayer, unburdened by any supplication,
Someone will take our hand,
                                                someone will give us refuge,
Circling left or circling right.
