 gifts of grief

all colors are pastel
and jellyfish float

in a violet sky
the radio plays Brian

Eno along with
the comforting symphony

of crickets
the mall has always

been dirt-free
the daily news

is a loop of fresh lavender
 but there are no stars

& moon
no Kubrick

or Agatha Christie
in the hum of okay

fine thanks
you forget that you

are a flame who 
can birth suns
