In secret ceremony

I kneel at your feet


Feed my hunger

Heal my sin

Purify my spirit

I give, and I receive

In awe. In wonder.

How best to communicate

My devotion

I try

To swallow you whole

To ingest, to digest

A primal meditation

With greedy mouth

And fervent hands

I feast at your banquet

The world distilled

To this fine point

Infinite connection

Take me. Take all of me.

Make me thine instrument

Bend me to your will

Slay me once, and then again.

The twitch and throb of your blood

Your hand on my cheek

My sacred conversion
