It is my instinct to run tho not in flight
rather in reverse I tremble for
a fluttering flag to fight beneath.
Because my heightened aim prolongs
the rapture demons fling into the shining
knight, it knows not whence it came.
Take heed take heart the light unfolds
insensibly and spreads itself among
our piteously inebriated and exhausted
lives. It hurls itself and we must yield
our diamond trembling in the womb.
