by Nevada Kerr

Oceans froze
When your pose came undone on the train
Now the words of care you disdain
Deny your lips the thoughts in your brain

Everything changes
Traffic slows to a crawl
Gravity stalls
And you can no longer fall

Hearts open up in the cold
As hurricanes rage
Your torn Bible pages come apart in the rain
Your plastic face bears a smile of pain

Some angel accidently uncages hope
And all the borders blur
Your on high God finally stirs
But the words that leave your lips are never heard
