“Patch” by Mitchell Marti

Miracles Lately

I was hearing the wrong house

The voices filling its halls and closets

Stars again spending the night with us

Birds too but singing in the wrong place

The sun moved and the citrus followed

The yellow of the house leaned forward

What’s happened to the miracles lately

They used to be crowded around me

legs overlapping  nothing sluggish

We always had the same time being

Now the ocean has swallowed the sun
