Friends only, these days.



There are always ways to fall asleep,
but to be alive is to forsake
the fear of blood.
And dreams aren't excuses anymore. You are not behind
a smoking mirror,
but inside a ceremony of boulders that has survived
your many deaths.
It is not by accident you watch the sun
become your heart
sink into your belly, then reappear in a town
that magnetically
attracts you.
What attracts cannot naturally be separated.
A black hole reversed is a white hot star,
unravels this night
inside a song that is the same wailing cry as blue.
There are no words, only sounds
that lead us into the darkest nights,
where stars burn into ice
where the dead arise again
to walk in shoes of fire.


From "Bleed Through" by Joy Harjo
