In the long sky
I am climbing an arc bridge
trying to open a latch
that guards the universal water

and I will not find it.
I enjoy my progress, see
my fingers carving deeper in the metal
that fires the passage
see it creaking to burst

but I will not be there.

Venus has been present for these weeks
her radiance almost takes up a spear
the light is overwhelming in its diamond way
through the map of blue cosmic bones
she surfs a class of stars
and fetters their path to cobweb

which once held a living thing in its trap
and rumor has it
was built by one
