Illuminated

I can vaguely see the

condensation glistening off the windows

as a halo hums lazily

over my head

and arches and rolls

lists fully, side to side

the corpse of a beautiful thing

is calling to me as I turn

from my right shoulder to the left one

I can’t be aware of it

and hopefully it won’t exist

without the fuel for this fire

a sigh shudders and racks my body

deftly transforming to a sob
