One Moment

August 8th, 2004

It was the melting of an iceberg
Running in sparkling rivers
Down the dark face of the moon;
The dissolving steel
In a single glance
That changed the world.
It was the piercing of a vein
That released the truth;
Sunlight rushing from a buried heart
To heal my wounds.
A chill that warmed me,
A salty ocean forming a puddle on my sleeves,
In an eruption of truth
I didn’t know was there.
The simple tension of muscles
A remarkable humanness
And a recognition
Of the quakes in my heart.
