Angel At Dead Man’s Curve

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.
