Another experiment

Brim

Above her eyes a barrier,
in her mouth a verb —
ditransitive, the nerve —
to touch another person
without endgame or design,
to state one’s Gospel in a way
that never has the need to say,
“My cup runneth over,”
but just runs.
“Brim with me,”
imperative.
She throws the hat away
the hope of return
eternal.
