You want to hold, withhold the precious thing –
sequester it – secrete it into shadow –
to be alive with it in private – bring
it into undiscoverable quiet – away from prying,
craven and misunderstanding eyes
to hide it in a haven – a place to harbor its deep
saving grace, to keep it safe, devise the perfectprayer to pray to it, to find something to say to it.
