A Space for Lightning

It’s not the end yet. Yes, I read

all the smudged papers & these

quires of tests. Love was never

a clear chart, square after square

with a space for lightning to tear

the heart. The glow of barium

is safer than this story but you come

straight from the ER

no sleep, trauma, cardiac

arrest, & rest here, a simple act

as I smooth your hair, fingering this & that

No clothes, no grief. You deal in accident

random collisions of cars & these soft

human bodies, cellular tests & touch

Let’s not face facts. Somewhere stars burn

& fall through the thin air, somewhere

a naked night continues & the world

is hinged with bliss. Love, meet me there.
