An Elephant's Memory of Blizzards

Whenever the blue cloud untangles itself from the red sky, we will continue to pray for you—in our invisible ship, our invisible

for the divine discourse of the soul,

for the end of the in between,

and for the windows to open unto an unentangled sky of white clouds free-floating against the insane blue—

and embrace each other like mighty humans.

-- Neil de la Flor, excerpt, "Prayer for a Blue Cloud," An Elephant's Memory of Blizzards
