A Confession, A Dream

I haven’t forgotten
The place in the woods
Where the fire was built
And the image was burned

The man and the woman
The beast and the bird
The secret is there
But it’s not understood

I am guilty 
You are free
I am filthy 
You are clean

What really happened?
Who spoke, who listened?
Who saw and what was seen?
Was it a lie or an illusion?
A confession, a dream?
A moment, a memory?

Power, profit, pleasure, prestige
Smoke and wind and snow and heat
You hold my tongue, ask me to speak
But you never say anything 

I am guilty
You are free
I am wilting
You are blooming

Your limbs like scriptures
Show me the way
You move the world
Like life is a play

I’m here to obey
I’m willing to change
Heavy are the chains
Help me haul them away

I haven’t forgotten
The place in the woods
Where the fire was built
And the image was burned
