Due to a brain error on my part, the 55 is late to post! Apologies to all and here is my effort..
More Thanks To The God Of Spaces
For gentian space between charcoal
and coral that keeps sunrise
from snapping the heart;
for void between cars
sluiced into exempt
from today's deathrace-lottery;
for this finishing space
where body rots
but spirit flies up,
veils of flesh rippling
with no touch left
save mother-child's, intemerate:
this shoreless space between breaths
before darkness expands.
