# 34

For two whole days the skies 
have kept me from the sea
two days of tiny releases that
shackled my prosperity

now as we (my body and me)
march east toward reconciliation
all thoughts are on acts
for reversing this ruination

questions will rise from damnation
just as the mighty phoenix
taught the all who saw
just what was within us

these answers lie in trust
which bares a face resembling
the dawning of a morning sun
...a force for an un-strangling
