Your Jupiter

Saint Paul, 11 April 2014
for Cindy Gipple


Paused on the steps of a darkened house
We divine nothing except the urgency of affairs
Snow crystals sparkle like stars above the Arctic Circle
Resplendence settles on the spines of two iron handrails
Your eyes draw me in like the mass of an unnamed planet
It's a body set in motion sometime following the Big Bang
Ice and rocks coelesce to moons orbiting your Jupiter
