In the Heart of Providence

-->
  
In the Heart of Providence
                                              (for Fredi)

she is a small house of memory
fine as glazed porcelain;

feathered bone’s delicate arches
curling like a galaxy center to edge –

hold inside this vessel –
singing with what those walls

remember; a hollowed-out heart,
today like a cathedral of the eye:

she bends time toward yesterday tomorrow
in starry design

where evening glimmers a covenant
carved out of the soul’s own stone

carved out of the soul's own stone
where evening glimmers a covenant

in starry design
she bends time toward yesterday tomorrow

today like a cathedral of the eye:
remember, a hollowed-out heart,

singing with what those walls
hold inside this vessel --

curling like a galaxy center to edge --
feathered bone's delicate arches

fine as glazed porcelain;
she is a small house of memory

in the Heart of Providence.
