Just bring yourself

Just bring yourself

 

w passpYou see, the problem with letting go of material possessions
is that you’re left with nothing but the flesh
tower of bend and balance.

You becomes so very precious
all your world is inside it
all your treasures
all your memories
your art
your light
your language,
your courage, what’s left of it,
your carpets, frayed at the edges
your favourite jumpers, long gone
and You.

You only brought yourself

But we only take visas,
not favours, love or culture,
or tears of joy,
embraces, thanks
or a gentle, warm hand placed on top of ours
in silence.
