A Mile Above Street-Level

Invisible Highway
conveying us all
to that enigmatic center
lifeless as an aborted premonition
of wakefulness.

A Mile Above Street-Level
your noise fades to the horizon.

The dream’s derailment become
a vicious nightmare of unfulfilled potential.
Savages in strange lands
beat their chests
and gnash their teeth.

At the moment of conception
the moment of departure
wherein the penitent soul resides unseen.

I hear your voice
and feel your silence say
‘Amen’ ‘Amen’.
