Poor some cream in my black heart, please, Barista Make it whole, done with half and half, done with skim. But no sweetener, not yet, I need to savor this bitter taste To wake the beat of my heart, finding its rhythm yet again.
the sky today penetrable and deep I reach my hand into its perfect blue in search of a star when found its light warms my open palm azure drips off my arm until a puddle floods our spot of the earth where we begin to play with our new toy above us an Angel plays … Continue reading An Angel’s Metamorphosis (with Spoken Word)
The perfect match strikes the perfect fire, But what does it burn so perfectly? Wait, did I miss my cue? You meant, the other kind of match, Like the one made In Heaven?
