The Red Between Us

To Michael Hogan

I thought the red
between us
was fire
dark and
brilliant
consuming
all flaxen
but it was blood
and everything began
to exist
in our shared body
of the Lord’s
hands and feet
a majestic wave
like clouds
swallowing the smog
of all covenantal
sacrifices
and all my pain
began to glow and illumine
this darkened soul
who once was spent
cursing
in the shadows
of flames
where rivers of life now flow
waterfalls
from chasms within
a great cathedral
