For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. {Ephesians 6:12}

And when th roofs darken, when th stars drift
until they shatter on th sea’s finish,
you will know what I told you is true,
when I said abandonment was beautiful

If it’s darkness we’re having, 
let it be extravagant.
☨ 

If it’s darkness we’re having, 

let it be extravagant.

 

Secrecy flows through you,
a different kind of blood.
It’s as if you’ve eaten it
like a bad candy,
taken it into your mouth,
let it melt sweetly on your tongue,
then allowed it to slide down your throat
like the reverse of uttering,
a word dissolved
into its glottals and sibilants,
a slow intake of breath—
And now it’s in you, secrecy.
Ancient and vicious, luscious
as dark velvet.
It blooms in you,
a poppy made of ink.

Take us the foxes, the little foxes,
that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.

And then her heart changed, or at least she understood it; and the winter passed, and the sun shone upon her.
