St Vinnie's

now to set the table and bring the family together
to help each other and prepare the food and to share
how each one of us feels about the moon and the rain
and where the children once went that was so long ago
so ancient and clear tonight that it sits at the centre
like a burning log or a bright cold embrace that we
feel wet on our skin so intimate that we dare not look up
but still are working together still labouring towards that moment
when the mystery is solved and we can go back to bed
disturbed enough to mean that we are still alive after
such a long time when it switched over at that moment we played
and cried in the snow but it could still be all of it to come
all of this still ahead waving us on to where we might remember ...
