Creed

I believe in doubt

I believe in the trellis
that supports
the bending vine

I believe in thirst
I believe in hunger

I believe in what
the body knows before I do

I believe in time

I believe in the thorn
that remains in my side

I believe in the fickle
ways of water and the stealth
of things that find their way

I believe in the mouth
restless for sugar
as well as salt

I believe in the dream
that fills with dreams
