blue

one more chance
at perfection,
i think of blue,
calm and clear,
an ocean uncharted,
endless,
impersonal,
a haven
crystal cool,
a shelter
from the burning night,
the burning wires
of love.

one more chance
at perfection,
the last,
the very last,
i swim out
shattering blue stars
in unfathomable waters,
i summon the horizon,
cobalt over indigo,
and it holds me,
like a brother.

2001
