mainlining sun rays

into the jagged cage,


ladders to infinity

splitting a wave


on rock, even lifting

mussels in a sea bird’s beak


could not stop your feet

from skidding on

crumbling mountains


the hissing cry

of a star bisecting

an orbiting moon



time is dependable

ruthless and chilling


inevitable, kind

rattling bones

and dusting the air


read to me then

a fallow hymnal

without promises
