there is no endpoint,
no destination, here is luminous
touch, now
urgent, the rolling
circling of us
here but also in dreamtime,
worlds unseen, my cry
moves through you and yours
through me, we are
quickened, here is
the cry of a hawk here
the growl of a lion, let
us enter completely, this
is not
the end,
let us
