After the storm, your sudden fever flickered out
You found a way out of the blankets and the house

Onto the patio, oh in just a towel
With eyes adjusting to the glow, you see it now

At home, the gift you sent beside an open card
With ink you smeared, it said to find you at the mark

Streaming and stumbling the flames will form an arc
A cluster patterning the heart

Of Father Lucian who saw it and rejoiced
A patient practice he enjoyed

I want to sweep the sky until I figure out
A way to watch it all unburdened by the doubt

I want to leave behind the questions I have known

Go with you astering and fall among the stars
Cascading, endless in the night
