The Peace of Angels

The Peace of Angels

 

 

I will release to receive

the peace of angels.

 

I will count the changes

as realizations, tip over

the radicalized, and be singular

in my transcendence.

 

Purpose is a translation. Within

are experiences discarded

or validated by memories.

 

Floating or being summoned

are counterweights, dangerous to stand

anywhere

but in the middle.

 

Loss is a hot vapour – burns as it first rises

and then, no more.

Love is everything – fills a moment

with the breath of eternity.

 

I will find the colour that draws me

the closest and I will choose it.

I will release the rest, know this surrender

as an exhale, a baptism to witness

that splits the sky.
