gently we are saved:
your body formed
from bodies so long grieved
by mine is warmed

the moment that you sleep
my mind awakes
I have nothing to keep
for our sakes

nothing to break or hold
nothing to lose
the generous powers fold
to emptiness

the nothing that we are
is all:
vulgar and opaque and rare
and mortal
