The Diaphanous Library / new poems 2011

Listen To Stars

put out your hand

and stop

this world.

there is a ringing

in both

my ears.

the rattle and whine of politics,
the buzz and static of religion,
the shatter and bang of money

can never compete
with the hum of love
vibrating there above it all

including a world in constant motion,
with its crooked, cockeyed axis scraping
against the lilt and lullaby of the tides.

so close your eyes

and listen

to stars.

in the quiet sky

they are

our hearts.
