Good lost word, succor. As an infant mouth pulls sweet need from the breast. Sucker: that child, or a loser. Or a gullâ€” someone fooled. Gullâ€™s a sea grace too, a diving shelter wing. Sucker: sweet on a stick. Sticky.
Dive and warm me, sweet Grace. Feed me, help me. Donâ€™t fool me, donâ€™t lose me. Be my succor. Stick to me.
