Altar Boy at the Grand Tetons
by Regis Louis Coustillac
When did I begin to dance past
the path of broken branches,
so satisfied with wandering lost
beneath an empty barrel of dying stars?
I look up to curse the moon
and see a single comet burn across the night.
It is a blessing on the forehead.
So I plant myself on a bed of moss,
and glaze my hands with dew and dirt.
A blessing on my forehead.
I begin to pray for rain.
