Baggot St Suite: This Place

This is a place
where you do
to leave the footprint
of your soul,
to inscribe your initials in some
imagined stone within the walls:
the proof of being here
the pride of learning from it
the joy of knowing that you
are confirmed here
in your mercy
and that memory
will bless you
at each recall.
What secret word
do you entrust to the house
until you return for real
or in dream?
What is the word you give,
the word you have received?
