Eyelid Sky (2015)

Temperate Maat,
That scaled Goddess,
She who knows
The light of sunrise
And the light of sunset
As it pours across the child
Earth who made us from that sun
Like a song heard through
A forest frequented
By Dionysus
He who feels
The light of sunrise
And the light of sunset
As it washes over the child
Earth who gave us
A mind that peers from shadows
With open eyes
To flickering candles
Holding vigil in Dark Water
To Understand
Dreams of the first stirrings
Tasting like a foreign kiss
Catching sight of a vacant vista
Where something must be
Like that child, grandchild
Earth who framed us
As the sun would be
If it weren’t so hot
So brilliant hot
Made to correspond
In that ceaseless breathing
Thing that binds us
Like a chorus sings
A space-cold symphony
Of inhale, exhale
Dancing little flickers
Of many Earths
And the cells, glowing tiny stars
Mirroring solar bodies
That only live to be burned up
By forever
