My 55 for this week:
Midnight's blue altar splayed
with a sacrifice of stars,
wind that tells secrets
to a storm darkened moon,
silence knocking with whispers,
blackbirds' questions at dawn
sharp marked on the sky;
all the weight, all the light draped
on the scream of a back
and in the shadow that passes,
the first of the cracks...
Note: I am having intermittent connection problems, so bear with me if I am mysteriously absent.
