When a man approaches the doorsteps of your temple

now darling, here’s my advice to you.

when a man approaches the doorsteps of your temple, you must ask him to shake the sand off his shoes; for no journey he has embarked on before this one will compare.

second, ask him to wash your feet. a man must learn to humble himself before divine beings. he will wash away the pain and heartbreak of the men before him in order to prepare for this new journey.

third, when it is time for him to go. he must bid adieu with a farewell kiss on the nape of your neck. he must not overstay his welcome. for there is a season for everything under the sun. he will leave memories & he will leave tales intricately scribbled on papyrus scrolls hidden in the depths of your temple.
