cage and christmas

there is no hole in the rainbow
just the cage
and christmas for my queer.

and did you ever see such a clear sky?
a wooden sea of splinters
ready to rough you up –
kill your bird. kill your flight.

metal doesn’t bleed
       but light does –
rainbows do.

and did you ever see such bloody water?
a locked sky full of lovers
rusty keys
to forget you

metal doesn’t bend
       but light does –
rainbows do.

did you know rainbows are circles?
on earth we are limited
to       the illusion of
a bridge –
