Tomorrow is Better

sorrow clings

a bead on the wing

of a listless dove

who coos above

the simmering day

a witness to fray

the inner landscape

of this steady heartache

i choose not to escape

for her fullness of breast

is her downy nest

an elastic knowing

from the fruit of sowing

as breath softly bends

on the interstellar wind
