Frankincense

whisper in an ear
words he never heard before
softer than a name

afar a homeland
who to the shift sands a kiss
returns three wishes

one summer soldier
into an August sunrise
the sky his own blue

from Micheal

artemis moonlight
aladdin’s lamp its rubbing
wonderland between

five seven five &
the middle way within us
roadless horizons

a long pause instance
persuasive verticity
over night an ease
