When Water Comes to Life
When the angels come, they’ll cut you down the middle, to see if you’re still there.
Underneath your ribs, they’ll find a heart-shaped locket with an old photograph of you in Daddy’s arms.
Then they’ll sew you closed and give you back to the water, from where we’re all born.
And you’ll feed the ghosts and you’ll feed the living. You’ll be a stranger and you’ll be a friend.
You’ll be the leper and you’ll be the healer. You’ll be the hero and the tragedy.
When they sew you closed and give you back to the water, from where we’re all born.
And they burn your body, all that’s left are sand crystals- two tiny handfuls – all the rest is water.
All you need to know is you were born of water, you are made of water, you are living water.
