PRAY TELL

When you have stripped
Down

Way
Down

To bare skin
And
Realize
You gave away

Nothing

Then the questions
Break like eggs
Over your head

The sickening mess
Of it
Slides down your
Tired frame

As your mind
Lights up
And the carousel of memories
Begin to run

You grapple for something
As meaning dances before your
Eyes in gossamer strands

You cannot hold them
In your hands

But you see

And you know

The heart that is still yours
Wrecks all as it goes

Now tell it…

Tell

This

To the people
Deafened by the
Rush of blood
In their veins

Blinded by the images
On their screens

Tell

This

To millions locked up
In themselves

Manacled by their dreams

Wishes entangle them

In straitjackets

Tell them you stripped

Stripped

Stripped down…

Way

Way down

To the marrow

And laid exposed

At the mountaintop
Listening…

For peace
