Brilliant By Definition

Candle's light lays
Sheer on veneer
a spotlight through a window
the thought I could
become a widow
Sadness like a needle
the pain of fear
Cheats the fear of pain
rising notes playing flutes
vacuuming the dust
of flames
mirrored from burnt out light bulbs
in the observatory of the oratory

boots standing their ground
idle without legs
mirrored walls
Catch nothing in reflection
a headlight through a keyhole
mary intervenes
while in my heart Christ on the cross
A Stigmatic in passion
lacking the blood of action
Spirit derived
in a body commanded to rise
from a Jack of clubs past
to a King of clubs future
in the middle the butcher
the red seven and nine
the ace of hearts
So Sublime
