“Just beyond the bruised lips of consciousness.”
–Jim Harrison, “Birds Again”
just on the edge of consciousness–
why can’t we remember that moment
when we free fall
into another orbit–
that split second
we escape the mundane
a secret world revealed,
I taste the stars on my lips
and wake to find the world glittering.
This is for Day 10 of Jilly’s 28 Days of Unreason—poems inspired by Jim Harrison’s Poetry.
