Heaven is up, they say,

yet around me comes faces

of children who make me go

of things beauteous and kind,

wonderful as kittens, or soothing

as neon tetras in blue-green.

no standing in a field feeling a

prayer like Ann with an e.

like popsickles in summer

and warm footies in winter.

Heaven.
