dwelling in
the body, as a house
as the world, dwelling
in the darkness
and the light which is darkness
the galaxy spreading in space and fire
the stars above the roof
going-in, ongoing
be here with us

dwelling in
the body, as a house
in the world, dwelling

dwelling in
the body, as a world
as a house, a tree
exploding with birds
in the darkness which is
light among exiles
the birds flying into windy sky
be here with us

dwelling in
the world as a body
as a house
in the darkness which is
the light
we reach to touch you
be here with us
presentness, be here with us
here with us
