National Poetry Month–Let Me Come to You (Pat Parker)

Let me come to you naked

come without my masks

and lay beside you

Let me come to you old

come as a dying snail

and lay beside you

Let me come to you angry

come shaking with hate

come callused

and lay beside you

even more

Let me come to you strong

come sure and free

come powerful

and lay with you
