Housefly


The housefly lands
on the window above the sink
Sun sweeps through translucent glass
while ambient dust drifts across
a pillar of Rembrandt light
A moment that transcends god
as black legs intertwine in prayer
The tiny nimble-head swivels,
darting with honeycombed eyes
Clear membranous wings
that skitter now and then,
with the confusion of walking
on a timeless, crystal sky,
buzzing,
Oh, how this messiah
has come!
