“Unbreakable as Anything”


I fear
that we are as unbreakable as anything,
that we only find
a fragile strength in our stillborn sky,
that the mountains
are violent sleepers.

The speckled indigo heavens sigh
upon my fear.
Your tender eyes and rainy smile
unbreakable as anything.

I fear
that if we’re about to die
the sesame seeds become meaningless;
that memories exist
simply for the taking.
But You are not
as anything.

Inspired by Psalm 121.
