Let Discharge Come

Inspired by the poem “Let Evening Come,” by Jane Kenyon

Let me, knocking on your door, come in and sit by you. Let me set a timer and arrange a box of tissue. Let discharge come. Let me listen to your day, what was good and what was hard. Let me catch your eye and surprise you with my care.

Let’s go back to early times—to your childhood, to your birth. Let’s resolve it. For once. For all. Let discharge come.

Let it come—and it will—and feel my hand in yours. The terrible things are over. So, let discharge come.
