Sunday Worship

The morning’s sermon comes to me
like a tender revelation
softened by your touch;
we are the miracle awakened
you are the sanctified
I am the enraptured
oh how we fell asleep in love.


Raising Hell

If it waters you down
yet does nothing to quench your thirst
it is putting out your fire
when your passion
should not be diluted or suffocated
but instead
baptised in flames.
