for you I'll be some steady voice

(your personal chaos reining in

my personal confusion)

giving me an objectivity

I wish I could train on myself

but we're all here to serve one another

we're all here to teach one another

we're all here to talk to one another

even if what we have to say

is as confused or hapless or useless as our hopes

in any small measure of forging our ways forward

at least we poke our way into whatever darkness prevails

at least we have each other for company

my voice...and your assent...and everybody murmuring

around the edges of our exchange

we may all think we're alone in this...and we are to some extent

but we listen for voices and hear ourselves

and adjust to the silence in our hearts....
