In The Crystal Earth: Poem by Miriam Sagan

in the crystal earth
perfection
not found above

beneath the chert
pale flowering trees
rainy spring

cold, edged
hung above
each chakra

on a body
constellated
like the stars

what did you wish
upon
and what did you wish

for someone to love
something to read
or—to be gone

to heal
you will descend
and still, grow old

this cavern
reflects itself
is its own treasure

remains always here
illuminated
beneath this earth.
