Need is a sturdy tabernacle


The pockmarked yellow moon
falls through the evergreens
through slender arms
along the still boulevard
driving in a trance

I wonder as the world awakens
in a rising storm of purpose
how many of us are at
the breaking point
how many of us have only begun
the fight of their lives?

Attempted to Believe Matilda:
