A Passing

a failed luminescence in the July grass or
under the overpass
away from the roar of crowds

and the awards banquets;

warehoused by the proud, if at all

a burnt out fuse of nothingness

no name outloud.
was gathered in the small hours overnight

by the angels

flinging exorbitant praise like broken glass shining
and needing no grave now.
