Boy in an apple tree

.

sun through leaves

shadows on his face
as if a dappled stallion

…………. time’s a tick       a heartbeat        far out
…………. elliptical and long as the orbit of Uranus
…………. (eighty-four of our years to one)

…………. heartbeat, sustain us

…………. in a capsule with companions
…………. in a click of recall that contains us

…………  thread of something through the raptures
…………. of the changes of dominions that remains us

nearby in our sky star
holds feet to fire

blistering gold medallion
