title image for "escaping oblivion"

I found a lightning rod today,
a subtle, soul-grounding stake,

copper clad and conductive
     to the bone.

I grabbed it, felt a lone charge
surge to heaven and melt again
     to earth.

The outcome:
threaded like a bobbin,

a resignation
never to be so uncommon again.
