sacred pulse

sacred pulse

the music of muses

moves as one blurred song,

remnants of grief,

sounding all the dissonant parts--

a sacred pulse,

ravaging hearts too soon.

poetry, instead,

silences the swoon upon arrival,

stretches the terrible beauty of rage-returned,

prolongs the noiseless echoes

to better shatter

the skin of the inborn universe.
