Preparing the table for what has not arrived yet—faith, distilled.

it is possible to imagine it all working out.

how i plant the seeds deep inside my head, far behind my doubting eyes. how i water them with the words inside my mouth.

the fierce tending.
the relentless, thank you.

how i stubbornly prepare the table, for what has not arrived yet.

— the brazen amen

Lovely people, I am notoriously reluctant to record videos because they require more dexterity than I possess, but this morning whilst I was drinking coffee, I did a thing and managed to read a poem from, The Velveting Bones.

I might need to take the rest of the day off…

But also, perhaps this might be a gentle provocation to your waiting heart:

prepare the table for what has not arrived yet.
