STORY WATER

A story is like water 
that you heat for your bath.

It takes messages between the fire 
and your skin. It lets them meet, 
and it cleans you!

Very few can sit down 
in the middle of the fire itself 
like a salamander or Abraham. 
We need intermediaries.

A feeling of fullness comes, 
but usually it takes some bread 
to bring it.

Beauty surrounds us, 
but usually we need to be walking 
in a garden to know it.

The body itself is a screen 
to shield and partially reveal 
to light that’s blazing 
inside your presence.

Water, stories, the body, 
all the things we do, are mediums 
that hide and show what’s hidden.

Study them, 
and enjoy this being washed 
with a secret we sometimes know, 
and then not
