Genesis 34: In Writing

To have
to hold
to take
to steal

to grab
to hurt
to speak
to love

is there giving
after taking,
can heart-speak
follow force?

Soul stick
the predator-gaze
the taking tongue
turns sweet
all you have is mine

sway and assuage
we enter and violate each other
at that instant

of terrible vulnerability
of hurt
we cannot defend


long case shadows
endlessly ripple
on the waves

is there forgiveness?
gift of reparation?
can i speak  to you, heart
or do we

on the edge of extinction
mother upon child?
