St. Philip, Bishop, and Companions

dear lover of the hereafter,

that’s as far as you can go

in this country

before your hat floats.

I know I’ve sealed up

the doors and windows

with the thickest ribbons,

but you’ve got to stop

running from everything

that scares you.

you’ve got to stop

finding yourself

standing in the kitchen

in the middle of the night,

not knowing how you got there,

searching the ground for a glass

that was never shattered.
