Originally I was going to call this poem Provisions, but when the line about the satin chessboard came into being, I had to change it...


I'll provide the fire.
I'll provide the light.
you provide the battlefield on which we'll spend the night.

you will bring your passion,
mine will be there, too.
I shall bring a tenderness
to share and comfort you.

I'll provide the questions.
you'll provide the thought.
I'll provide the formulae
to unbind the Gordian knot.

you will bring the red wine.
I will bring the white.
but in the darkness which is which
will be hidden from our sight.

I will play the suitor.
you will play what role
you choose in moments to defend
your flesh, your heart, your soul.

I will lay as sacrifice,
leaving nothing but to your will
to play this satin chessboard
with your purpose and your skill.

I'll provide the fire.
I'll provide the light.
you provide the battlefield on which we'll spend the night.
