Feathery Valentine

Beating pleasure from the body
scraping pain from the brain
the delays and uncertainties
which keep us from this moment
the toll that takes the bell
the earth as grave
from which we risen
send our living thoughts
and this was only Tuesday
(what exactly is a Tues and
where precisely are they found)
water on Mars is news
and later this fool
caught himself trying
to pick up a tiny feather
of light from the ground
