in the palm of my mind live
soft summer wings spread, billowing,
sigh beneath the curtains
as they clutch a pale
blue eyes reflect, a lake opens wide & falls
beaming, drawn toward the face of the sky.
a being at the window of an evening
i have yet to know.
it calls for me, my name cupped in the hands of the Word,
moves my body. some trace of what may come.
and i am shown
and i was the one:
closing heaven against your eyelids.
nesting dreams inside your bed sheets.
tasting solace in the mouth
of your sweet heartache.
