Poem: “A Piece of Sky”, notebooks, Jim Stallings

A piece of sky

Cut by a diamond

Dropped on a plate

Blessed by a goddess

Whose kisses press

My nodding head

Till awake & fresh

The meal is eaten

In calm realms

Far above the play

Knocking at the world

An embrace of arms

Collisions unknown

While ignorance avoids

The scripted future

My celestial meal

Saves me from harm.
