Birthing Lazarus

Take the shot
The end
My end became a circle curving facets stunning
Returning fields to grass water to splash
The sight to eyes eternal
Love drifting from fingertips
To your heart worn story
As I follow in lasting impression
All the while parts unseen exposed in dreams
The way you hold your fork and light your eyes
At the comedy unfolding me
You at the table at the moment
Of birthing Lazarus the first stage of Abraham
Learning my layers on burning bridges 
Going down in flames
I will break and batter down the door of frozen kisses
Fly up the infinite flight of starlight
Staring down the pillar of flame thaw the lips of memory
Rosy flesh leaning in 
To redeem the only dream and baby steps of love
