Glass is Glass Water is Water, Rae Gouirand
Notes on Vanishing, Camasin Pedroja
Like cleaning waves of water
with the same: entering
a feeling into a room of feeling.
Admitting to love with
a finite mouth. I want to ask
partnership with all things:
that I should have what is true
before me, that I should see
what I need. Nothing
washes life from itself.
We chase these thoughts until
they go clear, make circles
with sponge on glaze, sense
lather unbinding both
our hands: enter again
the running stream.
