True Name

--for kari edwards

At its moment of conception

The angel falls

For itself the immortal

Thought-body falling

Into the socius for

Itself a body

Smoked its last breath

Your Soteriology

Both brave and frightened

The bright words splay

Our sex the body

Is really a symbol of itself

Singular before its true name.

socius is the perfect word to be in a poem for kari edwards!

thanks SS... I have felt this lump in my throat all week from her passing... so few people seem so necessary or vigilant nowadays, I am mourning us all/the world
