Saint Sebastian

When the arrow pierces you the arrow pierces me
I will stand behind you like St. Sebastian's tree

Its ancient planet wandering, a long unbroken vow
I will stand behind you…at least for now.

The river rolls around your foot and flows out to the sea
the sun's a little thing laying at your knee


You fall down on the floor I lean against the wall
A black pool opens up you begin your fall
I look across the alley put my hand upon your head
Awake you touch the sleeper…asleep you touch the dead


from the art of swimming, released June 20, 2017
