in the heart of the yellow sun

the great current

the blinding white stars 

over a blue sheet


when this age has passed

and thunder rolled back its 

ringing flames

nestled in the high pines                 

of course these wild atoms of your heart


swallowed by the great current

the burning wings

the wedding at cana

and so it happens

to each and all

water to wine

flesh to light


it is summer now

in the skies long house

a rib cage of heat and fragrance

surrounded by 5000

your a lifted fish 

or a loaf

in the hands of christ


it is no wonder now

you are surrounded 

by immigrants and thresholds

 as vulnerable as dew

 in a field of fire


it is useless now 

to utter

the unsayable

why would you want to burn redemption

when the whole world is an open secret

totally lifted 

and out of proportion

Adam A DeFranco
