brief blink


you are getting better at this:

moving these murmurs through time;


listening beyond the trickle of life-blood

to the more ever-lasting.


how else do you manage the fear?


it is going to end someday, this leg

of the path, these moments you have known,


these glorious-rugged breaths;


the clock coming to a slow stop

inside this gentle chest.


for a brief blink, you will take it all with you;

then you will begin the next forgetting:


the forging that allows you to keep existing

until you come face-to-face with the god-frame


from which you were sprung.
