While Blues Turned Dark

Here too, it should have been bright
but you couldn’t refuse the gloating pond
glimmering in the fair view

The sky is you, belly turned up
holding the breath of a million lives
each day blue, night hung over moon

But you kept your eyes closed
and slowly all the light passed by
after dark had a renewal
