I Can Be Reached

by Judy Katz-Levine


Branches of trees limned branches
Against zenith of mauve the Catskill mountains

The angel who kisses me bows and prostrates
Herself before the exquisite branches

Caught light that expands into a nurse who
Finally gave me the right medications

I can be reached in an ultimate chariot of
Bliss and holding hands up unto the morning’s
Luminous lips

So that you know, remain concealed and
The angel who bows before you will sing, awesome
As the day is long
