Readings: “The Hardest Thing

faith is the hardest thing
a heart’s beat through the night
the stone whose loneliness cannot withstand the chisel
be patient,
choke your breath into the dead man’s mouth
once more
take what is broken and bring it home
for nothing was ever done without the hardest thing
nothing ever lasted through the night
