TOUCHING THE HEM OF HIS GARMENT

hem-of-his-garment

I come to you afraid to die
as an epileptic fears swallowing his tongue.
I come with the faith that I know nothing.
Long a drunk man, naked and sweating in your sheets
I come doubting my own existence.
White faced and sober, mouth spitting out ashes
I come to touch the hem of your garment.
