Any word that keeps repeating & repeating is a prayer.
How to fossilize a feeling, sustain it in amber?
none of them survived that storm of men that arrived on their shores
A heaving chorus walked me down the aisle of my spine.
I find in these blurred voices no borders or edges to grace.
this house inherited sounds from an imagined place
I see a color that was once unbled and call it you.
The stained-glass windows trapped a saint yearning for light.
I am a woman the same way my father is a man.
Here is a glass, he said. Pretend it isn’t empty.
If light comes late, then every eye is historical.
