Our Open Container
By: Adriana Stimola
You are always exploding, unseeable, coming together, something new, knowable, for now: looming, lined with God’s light; thumb-lick rubbed from here to heaven; a solitary ceiling sail; piled and playing at life on land; cresting in atmosphere, soundless crashing, without a care for our craned necks, the casual rounding of our shoulders, spells we work to climb the glass of our open container.
