(st. michael)


to ride with you is to ride with terror.

oh god of thunder, god of white lightning.

god, angel, saint.  white lines on a mirror.

to sleep with you is to know the brightening.

but then i was all alone.  the darkness.

full moon over the weeping willow tree.

once again, i hear the roar of engines.

michael, my michael, you came back for me.

to ride all night, to ride with an angel.

those wide white wings, a wild wind’s blow

eventually leaving me in hell.

above my crowned head, i see your glow

flying fearlessly across the sky.

you blaze out beautifully & then you die.
