Late at night

after she washes her face

and slips from her dress

.

she becomes a teardrop

quaking with grief

on the tip of God’s tongue,

.

but there —

see how the light

shines through.

Comes that moment
when eyes connect
with a stranger’s
and we feel
that deep click
in the gears
of the cosmos

and we’ve known them
forever
and it doesn’t matter
we’ll never meet again.

never mind the thorns.

Neon-lit flowers

spill from their wooden barrel,

“Catch me if your can!”

Young evergreen trees

reach out their limbs for a hug

and I shall comply.

He steams her edges

and, like stamps

on a postcard

.

she curls in the heat

falling free from the corner

of mythology

.

to be saved

by the fire

in his hands.
