Perhaps we are all wired

With hidden volts so high they hiss

With cables that endure-

The filaments of gods

Mapped, secretly, to only one

Is the source touched, still?

Their coded ringing telling this?

Their presence in our sky

So long established, that

They are no longer seen

Sing, shimmering wires

Remember the exiles

And bring back melodies

And words to trigger hearts

From the days of us

Hiss, divine light-stream

Break down my walls to love

Blow what I am amongst the meadows

Of summer’s parting joy

And call forth the seeded knowing.
