Sea Change

from 'Undated Lullaby'

...& your eyes,
close them--make arrangements to hold
yourself together, that will be needed, make of your compassion a
crisper instrument, you will need its blade, you will need
bitterness, stand here all you like looking in, you
will need to learn
to live in this prison
of blood and breath...
