Aurora Corporealis*

David Radavich

We need to grieve a while.

For everything we are

and have been,

dark reality

of our fantasies

that all too frightening

come to life.

Someone makes money

from our fears.

It’s all paid

for in flashback.

And now the cortege

rolls by

with our hearts

in it

witnessing ourselves

laid out

in the hot sun.
