I’m always walking with you, -ignoring needed chiropractic adjustments. Never mind that, because all at once the meadow starts ruminating over the fires still smoldering past camel hill. Audaciously, you shoot your finger to the moon as if you’ve discovered a curious thing. I’m taken by the brighter star. Dear God, when will our necks ever align? Still, – every day we’re more honest with ourselves. We tie our tongues, and lace our shoes.
here, inside of us
the whole sky and galaxy, –
two divining lights
She’s ‘Sky’ not because
She has blue eyes. They’re brown.
She’s Sky because we threw out
Daisy, Lucy, Goldie and Noel.
She came to us fresh and clean,
A snowflake from heaven,
And that’s why she’s Sky.
Well, there’s that. And also
Skylar Diggins, the Notre Dame
Basketball player hubby thought
Was great. But I never met her…
Skylar Diggins. And she never
Met my dog Sky, fallen fresh
From the blue heaven of mid-July.
