Sky Song

written by: Godfrey Holy and Tanya Rakh


a sunset of muscle
for memory fibers
a sliver of tongue
for each grain of pain
we seep from this, vapors
squeeze between dead worlds
toward a naked

our planet a graveyard
a labyrinth of smoke
and broken bones
between the scapulae
of serpent and ivy glow
leave me here a larvae,
find me winged in

sprouting feathers
splitting open spiral wounds
indigo haze, feeble breath
metallic, the haste of
starving hearts

meet me here—
let’s bleed out the tremors,
shame the
bioluminescent sky
