pocket infinities


             

sputtering lights of jesus

poke into sky burnt

orange, then black. precisely

11 pm every night

I lose sight


of them. a space

ship watches

until dawn. this makes

me feel

observed, attended, known, at least


from a distance, which is better

than jesus

who lives

more in my mind

than anywhere. the space


ship hangs

over kabala

mountain, more like hill

named mountain. in the morning

a freezing fog, and jesus


again. no one

believes me, although

if they did, I would

not know what

to do. I want to feel


a touch so heavy

it presses like force, one ray

of sun slicing through leaves

in my head.
