A Diviner

I want somebody to flood
my mind – to form ox bow
lakes – to re-fill my hollow
with a wash of kindly love
[one without demands for
a cruel command] – I want
dignity even as I slump [in
exhaustion] – to live with a
sense of worth – without a
counting out of filthy cash
earned in darkness – just a
loving other – one who will
not disturb beds to kick up
lies – no laggy sullen rivers
of muddied flows – no – no
