just beneath the surface
voicing past darkened songs
the ancient dust and ashes sister
broken waits whatever comes
brother listening the skyward way
brought to his knees
by earthly whispers
like an archeologist brushes aside
depths of anger and despair
seeking what hasn't happened to happen
tenderness reveals
mercy fragmented utterances
parsed into
blind and deformed invisible hand witness
the warrior shock breath
stillborn turns
