Only you

There is no more assembly

to keep us in fervor       pray  naked

There is no more horizon

to keep us in the project        dead     naked

There is no more intrigue

but to hold                     naked love

Brother Christophe ,

Love to the end of the fire ,

Monte Cristo 1997, p. 52.
