Grace

.

She dammed her feelings

for him

with a bone cork

and Earth became

a rocking jug

with aching sides

and tears

that leaked through cracks

.

and there was naught

but a dry, brown light

across the sky.

.

And when the gods looked down

they cursed the plug

and ground it to dust

with their fists.

.

Earth shuddered

and roared

in a great awakening

of heat and light

.

until at last

there rose

in her breast

the endless rainbow fount

of love undamned.
