Ciel, ciel

Joni Wallace

I’ll tumble the drinks while you
take a marker and trace hillside sheep,
round as soap bubbles, on the window.
We are smiling, we are emptying the world,
we try to look innocent. Straight up’s
a chroma blue, almost permanent, wide open.
No hand, no box on earth can hold it.

Joni Wallace
