Al-Matin

You might have everything
or maybe
you've got nothing at all

as you step ruggedly, self-reliantly
into this
big hopeful expanding day

knowing how to get along fine
forgetfully
managing your desires

wanting, hoping for equilibrium
but al-Matin
is not asking for a cut of you, no catches

what's on offer is
nothing
but a home for your freely given love

in eternity
