Caelum Walking

milan, september 2008

milanese duomo --
she walked along the spine of the church

and inched vertebratically towards
its space of miracles.

standing in the sky,
she breathed in an ancient city
and marveled at carved pink marble
and the moxie of medieval hands.

gargoyles and silent guards studied her as she passed,
and gently whispered suggestions as to
how to build her own life

now that word was out that
she had stripped the scaffolding
from her soul and finished
her inner remodeling.
