Filmmaker-poet Karen Mary Berr writes,
Back to you is a poem I wrote in 2011 and revisited in 2013, to express what I could feel in terms of longing.
Not a longing for any kind of after life, or any other state of being, but especially for a very embodied and carnal experience, that seems to have no limit in itself but is limited by death.

This is the expression of a kind of reversed-longing, when all is gone, for our incarnation.
