honoring an angel

i hear you are being
honored in berkeley––

for your sainthood of the Word,
your transcendent brilliance, &

naming a constellation after you
might be right,

or transforming the aurora borealis
into a curtain of golden coins
gently making deposits into your
4th street work-space could work,

or maybe just a resonant flash
of poetry lightning
bringing rain.

but what does an angel
of abundant light really need?

an omniverse of imagination
to care for,

a voice for all being that sings
from the heart,

a sun that arises every day
