Script Details

The vivid sunset,
the sky’s venous blue as it rages to orange, to arterial red—
I read faith there,
some shared exploit of blood.
What of the mercurial circuitry of the cityscape below?
At night, from 35,000 feet of sight,
the viral light we cast seems held against extinction.
So who cares about a little nervous circling of the runway?
Or the way some turbulence will pull at the body from within
and betray the smallness of these hands gripping the armrest?
I will bear the heavenly soupiness of the clouds,
forgive the pilot’s jagged descent into it.
Praise aviophobia
and my brutal desire for contact,
for skin again
and every lover
I have caressed.
This be the bless´ed in-between,
the holy fall from the flock,
from the union-whole . . .
until the touch to ground,
when I resist my urge to hug and kiss the stranger there beside me.
