by Lauren Sukin

This is the domino theory: that we will fall
like small Asian countries (against the Berlin wall)
awestruck at finding solace
in the great democratic fingertips.
With your arms a cradle into evening,
We will crest and wane and linger into the dark,
ever peering around the red corner.
I pray that nothing changes,
pray thanks and hope that at sunrise
the morning will undress me,
and naked I may tumble into stasis.
