Standing up is no less a miracle than Lazarus.
My skin, no less a sunset than an evening lost in chest high corn, sticky with summer.
Being still is no less a goddamned concerto than heart-breaking mornings wrapped in wool.

How many times must the night eat the moon? How many ashes on my head? How many feasts in celebrations?

Bones mended by sensation - sometimes just one touch.

This life is.
