  3. the tale the shepherds tell the sheep

    that some will rise
    above shorn clouds of fleece
    and some will feel their bodies break
    but most will pass through this
    into sweet clover
    where all     all will be sheltered safe

    don’t think about the days to come
    sweet meat
    think of my arms
    trust me
