Cremation

Of a holocaust, the last redemption;
like a spirit
rising from its body at the end,
the earth ascends to heaven
and for a moment steals infinity
and artfully inserts it
into everyday.
Beyond that vain acridity,
it is the dying
that unites the earth and sky.
This transitory brotherhood 
with fog and mist and cloud
now tints the air
as one amorphous curtain drifts 
to make the known surreal.
And out of chaos
comes another harbinger
of paradise.
