Unfinished

Tonight

I took three great breaths

conjured liquid darkness

set fire to the portside sinew

 

Tonight 

all waters were stilled 

a promise was kept;

no soul will drown tonight.

 

and the clumsy thunder of

my dancing feet 

tips continents off their shelves and

puts the earth to right again

 

Let all who dwell here raise our heads

and cast our eyes upon the proving moon:

We have not lost the sun.
