Have mercy on us Yes! on me Lord, mercy on this me
of yours, Lord, this.
Oh (bliss) you are a captor (bless me
please) Oh blue-lip Desert Night, you too a keeper
novice keeper, please release
me Yes release us please. Mercy spring
(up!) is rising, down-throwing darkness, down-planting
life; I am harrowed in Jezreel, the sun
setting over Tel Megiddo: beautiful blood shower
to the cavern-throat, dry-soul and open appetites
of us You are.
