to catch the sunset clouds
that fill the skybowl,
smattered with color and gold;

parrots, cool wind, and a
fingernail moon;

the no-longer-kitten
who thinks he’s a dog
and walks with us and meows

writing speeches through pain,
planting green amid ruin;

a friend on the line11357220_10152806548212124_8155273324396913693_o

don’t submit to lesser gods,
say a prayer for aid;

the aid arrives
as sunset and gold,
parrots, cool wind, and a
fingernail moon.
