Stain Beauty

Francis Raven

Beyond the salt stained window
two of the teacups were knocked over
by the uncreated light.

Are you kidding?
Light doesn't knock things over.

Ideas do.

Pans knock together
and pull the trigger of a disregarded gun,
all because of words
all because of the light
that streams through
all of our stained glass windows.
