Angels Look Last On What You Had Seen

angels look last on what you had seen
taking it all in
in a silvery census

and without censure.

how much you loved the trees

outside your window no one
knew.

and rainbow bubbles in the dishwater

and suddenly, the inexplicable shifts of colours in the sunset
as if God were turning a kaleidoscope

and the kaleidoscope

was you
