The Morning You Left

the sky is a hallmark card
on acid.

blue (like my niece’s eyes) with
slashes of
chemical peach

it smothers the horizon
a volcano in slow motion
spewing light
over shadowed ground.

clouds scud across the surface, spelling out a
morse code message.

things always sound more
beautiful
in a language you don’t
understand.
