a pair of pessimistic eyes
ignore the igniting double-rainbow
that kindles neath a dead pot of homemade anxieties.

give him a saucer of no water
and he’ll tell you all the dreams

over the drowsing sky; no prayers
at the church made up of sand.

because you don’t see,
all things bright and too holy
don’t notice you in return.
