The Lion. The Lioness


 Come to me.

 Come to me like the river’s roar,

 like ravens at the morning’s door.


 There’s no knock;

 no bronzed lion to pound and wake,

 just yawning dawns; the lush daybreaks



 like sunrise. I, your troubadour

 will sing across your kitchen floor;


 enough warmth

 to stay the dark; to overtake

 each fear, each tear the wicked make


 slip your cheeks.

 Let my arms be your sacred shore;

 may loneness haunt you nevermore.


 I, the flawed,

 give you my sovereign heart to take—

 each bounty, glory, each mistake



 clasping hands through destiny’s door.

 Let us be fearless. Let us roar.
