UNDERLAYER




Let them take it 
Off you, 
Your dignity

Said the Crucified


Like they took it

From me

Untorn

Undergarment

Full woven

Seamless

Nearest to skin

And flesh and bone
Protective layer

Camouflaging

Its naked
Sensitivity

Let us let go

Of all that

Arriving uncovered

In the underlayer
Of contemplation

Heart and soul


Where God communes

Intimately
With unspeakable tenderness

Where seamless integrity

True dignity is born

And hope springs to life

Borne out in every
External expression
