In confidence he spoke of angels
Transcendent beings who whispered in his dreams
They told him how to save a life
Not his
But, a child’s
He drove his motorcycle off a bridge
She lived
– Though the doctors said she wouldn’t
So did he
– No one’s quite sure how
That wasn’t the point
He wasn’t the point
Theirs were not the secrets of longevity
They spoke of sacrifice
A choice
To balance some incomprehensible cosmic scale
They found the right dose of seroquel
They never spoke again
Angels aren’t real
Unless you’re mad
