Gather me in from all the ends of time, from wood and stone,
Embrace me like letters of a burning prayerbook.
Gather me together — so I can be alone,
Alone with you, and you — in all my limbs.
Find me in a grave between the other world and here,
While weighing which of the worlds is better …
Find me as you avenge half a tear,
And when you see me cooling a hot knife in snow.
Remember, the cloud is sown through with my bones
