Imperfection

Tonight, wanton moonlight.
Stars cold and listless.
Angels take human form
to vent their sorrows—
Imperfection.

Stillness, bowed head of a goddess.
Gold sobriety stained with sour wine.
Sugar-coated flawlessness now
full of cavities—
Imperfection.

Fervent dreams trapped in a subconscious box.
Shiny green lizards dancing
on clouds full of rain:
Imperfection rears its beautiful, exotic head—
and we are all sublime again.


(From the book Kairos)
