I Am Rich

I am rich in darkness

I wander in fear with my pride

not a mortal, but a flame.

I’m rich in a window

I quiver in my volcanic image

smooth but violent.

My language is tender;

teach me confidence.

Fear me; I am amber, a wordless truth.

Sleep on my dark pillow

and remember me as I go.
