If you ask me to read something
I’ll say only the good,
---in spite of what others might think

Once your blood has been spilled
and the wound is now deep, my task to heal,
---not push to drug or to drink

If the pain is too great
then my heart you may take,
---as I suture you back from the brink

From this deepest of wounds
that myself I surround, with a fountain,
---where you may now drink

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2015)
