Make peace with a swirling sky

Holding tightly to a vague memory

of a make-believe mountain

drenched in quiet color.

Angels plant images like these

to sinners who repent in sleep

so they don’t drown in groggy sobs.


Bone and stone, star and sight

all carry the same oath, a blessing

when released on northern lights

and let go over dark seas.
