Temple of Gold.




The even star lit
upon the tree
and what fire
poured out
of those leaves
tearing the sky
into mad shreds
of yellow and ochre;
It dripped
from their edges
and dizzy with love
and longing
I stood underneath
gathering it all to me
How my palms burned
and my face.
Overcome, I leaned
on its bark
and felt it tremble
or maybe it was me.
I was beyond the point
of knowing.
