daylight with earth

she saw by
her soul
images painful
bold. this world
its children
mix daylight with
earth

she took the lights
down. he pissed on the porcelain
water scattered
with poison

dead leaves pale
faces under a big
sky

candles on the tank

elbows
and shoulders and

knees

he had to have her
pain made him
whole again

behind his eyes
a redemptive quality
cast in a pervasive light
his struggle
hers
