maybe lets question heaven and community
How close

i did not mean to wing a daemon or
  in any other way give grace to a devil
or other lesser evils
if there is a lesser
i only intended some small awareness
that could encourage buoyancy
neath the angels wings
and maybe fire in the breath they sing with
loose some shadows on
the horizon,
the path that they do travel
so they could also know
all the crying in their ears
is not always innocent
maybe i was close
and they would take a wondering
and look at  what looks
like a dusting of rain
on a closely quickened spark
tight like a fist....
or the almost magical appearance
of a spark on wood wet with failure...
i only meant good things
and love
and laughter
and to maybe sit close with the angels
and hope they were our neighbors
i hope i have done no harm
to their community or mine
is heaven really so close i could hurt it?
