Essex Hemphill, from “For My Own Protection” (via thematerialworld)
As the blood dries
on a gallery wall
we hold glasses of wine
and toast to metaphors
my chapped hands get lost
in the deep-sleeping fragmented rain
I will rest here while you awaken and gather your blanket of dreams
but come back soon,
visit our jagged world
and soften its edges again
