Subtle Hymn

Lightening strikes

a subtle hymn

until we hum

we left that room

electric charge

hovering over

barge and tunnel

biting us like ants

heavy on our shoulders

crawling skin

begetting thin



whipping loudly

your hymn

of quietness

tipping you over your edge

into your cup

of swallowed



with a feather brush

you strike out


to that unexplained


that never seems

to leave

your side

to what end?

did you write your book of life

by yourself?


you did not

it was scribbled

Holler to the clouds

and ask why

you will never be happier than you are


panning what

you learned

was so horrible

you had to

look away

like a page in a book

that was locked
