We say that we will have a Good Life.
This is a guarantee
if We are kind
to one another.
If We are patient.

If, when I speak, you listen
and if when you speak, I hear you.
This is assured,
if We continue to look
for one another.
If We want to find.

If, when I am here, I am seen,
and if, when you are here, I see you.

We say that this will be a Good Life.
This is a guarantee
if We are Naked
with one another.
If We are clothesless.
If, when I am vulnerable,
you shelter,
and if, when you are defenseless,
I protect-
