The Dark Angel

A hand touches your bed
and down the street
a car skids into a giant oak.
This is not your child
lying in the white hospital
with a broken spine, closed lungs,
not this time
but the dark angel hovers
singing prophecies,
a prowler waits
at the midnight door
your daughter opens
your son falls asleep,
a live cigarette falls from loosed fingers,
imagination shrieks and howls
as the dark angel
flies into the distance
busying himself with floods, fires,
other calamities,
climbs a blue-bleached sky
filled with clouds,
sits at the flowery edge,
a random spit of Paradise,
the black ice cracks, wicks flicker,
lighted candles choke and die,
from time to time
the sigh of invisible wings
touches your arms,
your eyelids flutter,
