Treasure Island

Eric Cockrell

If I Prayed with You

if i prayed with you
meshed together by the naked night
molten images of human groaning
lit by the very breath of God...

if i prayed with you
turning slowly on the spit
beneath the shadows we wear in darkness
and wrap our light inside...

if i prayed with you
nothing hidden, nothing faked
and stroked your face with knowing hands
as if the Painter's brush....

if i prayed with you
and was lost inside your hungry mouth...
would you dance with me inside
the meaning beyond our words?

if i prayed with you...
