38. Baptism

Baptism took my body back to where
     a one out of two
was made, in liquid prayer:
          Please, to be made
          (a)new.

Fire, on the other hand, will douse my frame,
     will cause or will clear
my death—all pleas muted by flame
          as love devours
          what's dear.
