fallen angel

i am captivated by your cosmic reveries.
soft-spoken and gentle,
like the warm touch of desert air
on bare shoulders

johnny-on-the-spot, singing morphine hymns

don’t say my faith is just a hitch in time

crowned crisp white,
blue stars burnt the brim,
you knew the rhinestones
foretold your falling
