The sky enters our lives

daily and always. Brushing our eyes

the sky comes from afar and washes us in its blue

It’s blue that dampens our bones

and lays them out side by side like a xylophone

Listen! We can hear the wind rattle

blue rattles/ rattling blue bones

Crack them open! With what seeps into our fingers

we trace lines down each others’ face and arms,

and putting blue fingertips to lips,

we taste sky, we swallow blue

in all its rosy shades, in all its greenness,

whispering sky, sky, sky
