Extreme Moments

In those extreme moments
Words rumble against the gates
To exact the essential offerings
Of your body parts
One by one at the alter
Of the contract you made years before
While drifting like a dreamy doll
Around the holy fire.
In my hours of solitude then
I do the repair work
Of stitching my soul to my body
To hide the shame of nakedness
From my own self.
