If It Is Enough (Poem)

If It Is Enough

If it is enough
to cup two hands

To once hold

And once
bring back

Your hunger soothed

And if
to put parched lip

To goblet lip
is yet enough

To make one sip

No slip to last

How is it
you lie alone

As your heart arcs
in squid-ink

Your plaster cast
of shadows
