Brother

for Pete Morgan

Brother not in blood;
brother in beats of
heart, in willingness
to crush fear,
strengthen and encourage,
shine slighted armor,
sharpen iron against
iron.

Brother not in blood;
brother in parallel currents
rushing with agility,
sweeping out sediment
beneath our feet and
filling our hearts with
every pain and joy
imaginable.
