Called Today

Called Today

A Poem by Erin Sky

Step beneath that foaming waterfall

white as maidens’ breaths in winter

moss curtains and rugs, happy stones to support you

and wash away this abomination called today


the salt mine in your skull, exploded

left mountains in the corners of your eyes

those pretty pink glasses are ocean-mottled

and you face is a desert, carved by canyon-water


Clean away all that made you never want to stay

and sing to ease that colic heart to sleep.

The cold floor beneath your weary clothes,

dirt in between your toes


flow away

and go to found another day
