The Word of God

love leaps as foals across star fields
love emanates from pools of rainwater like spirits.
love lines the eyes
of tired sorrowful waiters
love is endings and beginnings, not all of them happy
but every last one worth it

love gathers: iridescent dust
a film over shelves and counters
love percolates in seas that are still rising. love unfolds leaves
and grows up slow in the stamen of honeysuckle and pansies
love curled up like a housecat on the chair in the corner.
love serenading love,
ever-saving; love everywhere, love escaping
from crevices beneath doors
