FABLE, by            
First Line: I heard you singing
Last Line: Was in my face, like a great amen.

I heard you singing,
And cool, cool hands
Pressed down my fevered thoughts.

I heard you weeping,
And pain, like a slim
Stiletto, ate into my heart.

I heard you praying,
And the breath of God
Was in my face, like a great Amen.
