Rooted in a patch of Heaven’s dust,
An angel is stationed unseen, between
Dark draped folds of road’s midnight curve.
Foolish youth, heart tattered after first-
Love’s disappointment, drives drunk
On winding single lane beneath
Sky’s spill of unlashed stars.
Sly delusion, Invincibility
Presses pedal, accelerating speed.
Spun-crystal moon shimmers, blinks
As car hurtles off sheer cliff…
The angel snatches driver Home
To God’s arms, instead of fiery chasm.
