Did you forever
feel that wrench of hair?
Pulled onto the banks of
so many visions by that strong hand.
lighting up inside that head of yours.
I imagine you gasping for normalcy
by that river,
as it widened and widened.
Did you think a lot
about those wheels within wheels?
And all those eyes
on the wheels within wheels?
At least cherubim didn’t have to be
pulled into glory by their hair.
The wheels within wheels mode-
it’s what I wish for many.
for young girls on the back of a truck
driving them away from education
and safety. Wheels within wheels,
dear girls. To bring you back,
back under the expanse.
Some burning hashtags, helpful also,
if cherubim could throw them at
the departing tyres.
And someone, please, adjust the
trucking suspension system.
So those girls, dear girls,
can move with spirit.
And let the satnav system show
visions of God.
So their eyes, so many eyes,
can be washed to sparkling
by the widening river.
