Radiant and Undefiled

Radiant and undefiled, the arcs

Of lightning further glow,

Until the hollow, wayward night

Doth swallow up the shattered seeds

Of fallen sky—the tears of God—

That split in twain and ever flow

Away into Eternity, where

Fortune ultimately leads.

There’s little point in reaching up

To hoist ourselves among the clouds,

But fitful hearts conspire to

Sing songs of urgent memory,

And while the rigors of forethought

Decline to lift their damp’ning shrouds,

We leap until our knees dissolve

And lay us down alone to bleed.
