Missionary Triage

Tender natural births
for the undertaker’s daughter

And, end to captivity
as empress of the death house

Black natures gather
conversations with the world

Angels of their tribes
break blue bread in darkness

Odes, kitchen sonnets
bear witness to us forgetting

Volcanic ashes press
remarking remnant arrivals

Poets of another age
still travel lands between us

White-petal peaks
blossom behind green skies
