How Can You

How can you just sit there,
Eyes blue like dusk,
As if you aren’t an angel?

As if a room full of dust
Could house such polished beauty
Among tarnished musk.

As if your presence
Did not, somehow, demand
A Reveille of trumpets.

Staring at your hand
As if it could not heal
A broken world.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
