I trust you
To follow your love
Ply right from wrong
To listen

I trust you
To feel hurt
When something
Cuts below the tightness

I trust you
To bring your longing
To the cup at the edge
Of the world

After all you’ve seen
Who wouldn’t
Trust you
With pain?

Even so
To save
Our mutuality
I hold one thing back

Do not look
For my soul
In the litter
Of your cosmos

Such gems as we
Must learn exile
