Ready To Go


                              You also must be ready, 
                        because the Son of Man will come
                        at an hour when you do not expect him.
                                    -Luke 12:40 (NIV)
      
      
      I'm ready to go the distance to perfect
      the love for which our bodies are elect,
      and to its holy end to then endure
      its worst temptations. Bring its allure
      on fast and hard, its passion leave unchecked.

      What image were you anxious to protect?
      Control? Composure? Mutual self-respect?
      As sure as any man might come, I'm sure
                                    I'm ready to go.

      And when we're finished, then to resurrect
      myself beyond the reach of night's neglect
      and in our bed's release to find its cure
      against the morning's promises de jour,
      to dress, to slip out. When you least expect
                                    I'm ready to go.
