Cold Cotton

hold me please
give me comfort in your carelessness
embrace me in your
moistened cotton extremities
grey and gracious
cold and cleansing
keep me respectful of your power
keep me aware of your offering
light me a path in my careful
and cautious darkness
with a flash of electric encouragement
rattle the earth
shake my feet in the right direction
thunder my mind into clarity
soak the sorrow from my bones
drip your nectar upon me
anoint my head
bless this soul
who knows
that he knows nothing
oh great grandfather sky
cry with me
for today I feel so alone
