The THIS of It – for Nic
the vastnesses of exchange
that ventilate –
the sliced open hole in the bleeding
trachea of life
the THIS beyond the language that gives it life
in the deep deepnesses of now
that suture this love on your everything. THIS.
your story shared [THIS] your naked ode [THIS]
here in the knowing of supple scars –
provoked acknowledged swallowed the ecstasy
of being YOU [THIS] [ALWAYS YOU]
Congratulations, Nic Brewer!
