It floats

on the wings

of tongues

dives off

the stanza of poem and promise.

les dames d'abord

What can summon its descent

from the heavens? 

les dames d'abord

It will fall as letters 

then as sentences on a page


brown ground 

troubled with blindness.


will wrap its nakedness

  in flesh


black, white, and brown shapes

and we will see how

a citizen


the otherworldly

can touch feet to earth

les dames d'abord

put face, her face


the intangible

and walk page after page

through eternity.
