First Encounter with Culler Lake

a bit tired
a bit strung-out
a bit hungry –
all the obligatory laments
of a man without home

yet, I have one (infinite/eternal)

safe haven
any spot on earth
but especially the space

where the goose honks
or the owl hoots
or we find silence
and call it comfort

now I will see you (reveal/unveil)
in a way
that is not a burden
but a blessing
of light unto the world

(or even just a dark room
filled with trauma)
