bring them down

bring down the gifts
the gods have given

let them come

and bring in Wisdom,
learned on all your roads;
hold her back no more.
Open her floodgates.

The Headwaters.

let them all come

bring down the gifts
the gods have given,
bring them all down now


and bring in Assurance
the resting in her waters
the soaking and the sound
the touch and feel of dirt and
ribcage dawn underneath

let them come

bring down the gifts
the gods have given;
bring them down, now, all.
