Poem: Breathing Holy

If this is the place
Where nothing is holy,
Then let’s make a space
To change that, utterly
Where sighs and love, and
Half-whispered words
Are all that’s required
To make the world turn;
Where the light behind eyelids
Is not nervous sensation,
But instead is known
As religious exclamation;
Where clasped hands
And a head on my breast
Can hear and feel more
Than the heart in my chest;
Where, in moments of silence,
(The breathing of breaths)
We can feel down to our souls
There’s more than we sense.
