Corona

Heat and light encircle
the sun in rays and waves
unseen to human eye
unless—until sheltered
by an eclipse. So strange
the dark allows a glimpse
of what was always there.
We watch from our back yard
through charred lenses and smoke
rising off an altar,
the sweet-meat syrup-drink
laughter halted as the
sky snuffs out our sense of
responsibility.
