Above Ground


Above Ground

In the land of manna,
you experienced healing through
reflections of street lights in rain puddles
the sale bin at Brandy Melville
broken train lines
& kind faces

You rode a moving staircase
that emerged above ground
under a tree canopy

In the land of manna,
you felt beautiful for
the first time

Let this be a testimony
of God piecing together a
heart that needed healing
