Resurrection

Sasha Fierce and
i
hie our way home

the pictures
our pictures
come down
                     today

Saint Valentine’s
                               (flowerless)
blessing saved us, sustained
as we are
by Hope’s
                  (colourless)
hidden words, visible
to no other eyes than
ours

but

before that
before that

while Forever was
                                  washed
in desperate silence,

the pictures
our pictures
came down

and on that day

Sasha Fierce and
i
flew through the fog
 
picturing the pictures
our pictures
packed by
                   (loveless)
proficient hands, into
chilled and barren pressboard
wombs
from which will
                           rise
pictures
other pictures
                          but
not

our pictures

Sasha Fierce and
i
sing our way back

we sing
of halos and hellos
of egos and rings and boys, and

i
think

i think of the man
i think of the lion

i think of forms, these
forms, chosen by one
                                          arch
angel, these forms that are
met, these forms that are
known, only through, only by

me

me and
Sasha Fierce  
praying our way to Spring

                                         “She was lost in so many different ways
                                          Out in the darkness with no guide

                                          I know the cost of a losing hand
                                         There but for the grace of God, go I”

go i
go i
go i

ruined
you say
               Ruined

saved
i say
         Saved

both of us
Saved
