"Enlightened Steel" Black Rock City, Nevada, 2007
I believed I had known forever-after. Then you happened
Against the backdrop of the universe you
transcended the stars. Our first kiss
annihilated the torched earth of our pasts.
But like comets we were dissolved by our brilliance
until a love like the hand of God intervened. Where there was hurt
we found healing. In our insecurity
we discovered in each other an anchor. Our most impossible flaws
evolved into unimaginable perfection. This eternal heaven
stretched out unfathomably beyond a perceptible end.
