Counter-Reformation

 

Jaw slack, mouth open
in helpless awe, eyes gleaming
into unseen realms.
Across his shoulders,
chiaroscuro limns the edge
of the soul's bright dawn:
supple, turbulent,
a god blossoms into flesh,
life longing for life.

A Prayer for Explorers

 

For the men who tonight in New York City have finished their first day of Celebrating the Body Erotic:
For the workshop instructor.
For the men who in sheer generosity are dedicating their weekend to assist him.
For men who have the courage to own their lives.
For men who have the courage to say yes to the wisdom of their bodies.
For men who have the courage to affirm desire.
For men who are willing to be seen.
For men who have the compassion to see others.
For men who open themselves to Surprise.
For their healing, their growth, their deep joy.
For the repair of the world.
