Bare Me Your Soul

Can you bare me your soul?

I’ve never wanted to know anything more

Open your skin

Expose me your veins

Your blood

Let it froth out earnestly

 

bare me this … just once…

 

I lie naked

Open

 

Give me this small thing

A pound of your flesh

You can keep all the rest

 

Send the herald to the gates

Command the guard

Be king

Be firm

Be just

Open the door to your people

And let them see you in your glory
