IMPARTATION

of the everlasting
flames

these gates

of heaven
on Earth I know

these gates

of hell
arched like hands

pointed as a tongue

of fire
across the threshold

of the human soul

   +

how it is
our ultimate

colors

truly
show

   +

mine are

orange

as the Pacific

sunset

i missed out on

today because of

all this working

   +

the moon is
now

making headway

through sea-fog
fleeting

tonight

reminding me
why I believe

in love

as I believe
in

falling
