‘Precarious Migratory Spectacular’ by C. Murray

Stone weighting my palm
has sprung a cathedral

heart jumps
walking in the flesh of its surpassing grace
groin-vaulted and high as

no bird ever escaped to soar this
seamless and

there is no blood
no feather
no bone—

stone cannot make the bird.

  1. The subtle intracacies of rhythm in this poem are mind boggling. My guess is that C. Murray plays an instrument.
