all night buoyancy

8 year old boy floating in the
dead sea for 6 hours
saying prayers and thinking of
school friends remaining calm
how did all these moths come
through the closed doored night
how it hurts to have a huge heart
floating in star space where in the far eternal
distance there are planets made of
light 20 times larger than the earth
how it is cool the way
the wind blows through the leaves in
end of summer sun and makes the high
leaves glow and sprinkle light
and crinkle like pages of poems
and the fan in the window turns without being on
