Flames

 

 

I woke to where you fell asleep

on asphalt crumbled unfulfilled.

I walked the confines of that street,

my hands familiar with the wheel

 

my ears familiar with the roar

of engine grinding piston speak;

the sound before the metals meet

and fold themselves like sheets of tin

around the place your heart had been.

 

Around the place your heart had been

a shattered spray of diamonds strung

in disarray, like stars descend

and fall among the embers flung

to smolder in the wind.

Is this the thing that God intends?

 

The big machine has closed his eyes.

Your sparkle leaves inverted skies

to sprinkle light through Heaven's door.

The moon has landed on the shore.
