When these grey days finally melt
and I look overhead
to see the ceiling of my world dissolve,
then I too will dissipate into blue.
I will feel my arms and legs disjoin
at the shoulders and the hips,
will set my eyes toward the azure sky
and let my head fall back
to float on the liquid pillow
of an emerald sea.
I will ride the embrace of summer’s tide
until winter washes me ashore once more.
