Killeen Sky

by Margery Hannah

There is an ocean large
above Texas

where copper flickers

ivory fish ribs scale the expanse like veins in overgrown leaves

and a skeleton man smiles down
at me

Where clouds paddle near eternity

And I inhale and swim intermittently

Where from one small light
generations are born

And stars salute as soldiers to respectable seniors

And I am absorbed into the might

The night of this great Texas sky
