Through blood moons
And comets that disquiet
Or meteors that threaten
To rend the planet with their
Heavy showers
Through acidic, scarring speech
Or blood violence
To make the earth ashamed
It ever gave birth
Through baseless hatred
That burns with endless fire
I come to you and look in your eyes
I see your tender smile
And hold your face in my hands
