Perhaps it is we marvel so
in darkened hours at the indigo tapestry
because as we gaze up from here below
we recall the view from above this travesty

Where once we saw as souls await

was engraved on the back of twilight’s slate
now in that stead we straddle fences

Half a man and half a spirit all outside internal
a creature of lace and of personal space
angelic beautific infernal

Perhaps it is we name them thus
and strive to find an order
because we realize that deep within all of us
is some divine inspired boarder

We recognize the spark that flies
and welcome the comet’s blaze
because we know after all our tries
perhaps we’ll embody that perfect phrase
