Rainbow Beacon 2021

The separation between us
there is always a gap, a gash,
a break—I peer at you,
wait for your light,
for illumination,
to bridge the gulf between us.

Above us, the stars.
Now your beacon
rainbows a swath
of night’s dark waters,
glorifies the flimsy
barrier between us:

we prism,
we rainbow,
we become
the light between us.
