Cloud Paintings

Lines arranged in such a way as to suggest a face

but they’re not really lines and not arranged

the way flesh holds us together one might almost see

cloud paintings if they were there and we were here

as we imagine ourselves to be where the sky and river meet

                                oh it is such vanity to speak!
