In Memory of Audrey by Jason Kish

I stood,
Your words in my head. Spoken
The last moment we shared,
Patiently waiting, watching
The soft chaos of the universe
Wrap its body around yours.

The sky that night:
Radiant darkness, shining ice,
Covered breathing springtime hills,
Stood tall above the glow, above tombs,
Resting finally upon
Your marble name.

I pressed it to my soul

So that sky,
Would remind me of
My promise, my rage.
