“intent unspoken”

intent unspoken

here the breaking of the bread
veiled in context of their stark hotel room
as she undoes her belt
he his buttons

he a poor and broken god
coming to her
in the shedding of clothes
the wary looks
quiet gestures
intent unspoken

this is my broken body,
for you

take this
for the forgiveness 
of whose sins?
