Arizona Smith, Dens


The house became full of dens
Marked corners became yours

I set them alive
For you
Braided into being
Hopeful of your feeling
In silence
Are you happy
Do you dream
In dimensions unknown
You light me
With your eyes
Daring me to hear you
I bring kindling
And make a place for you
In every altar
I can find
