ISSUE:  Spring 2013

How could they know,
how could anyone know
you were not formed by origins,

a family colder than a well
of fears? No ordinary rule applies
because you’ve died already,
died and died,

as fresh annointings—salt, baptismal rain—
become the ritual made new
by moving on and moving through.
