Walking On Water


You prance your masculinity
like God-Of-All-Women,
sharp as bullets in my life,
never a gentle touch.

I will swim in waters deep,
places you can never reach.

You have not learned
the breast-stroke;
you cannot swim here.

If you are the Power God
of everything me,
try to catch my wake.

All you have to do is
walk on these waters
of change.

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
