The Archangel Michael Defeating Satan by Guido Reni.


(st. michael)

to ride with you is to ride with terror.
oh god of thunder, god of white lightning.
god, angel, saint. white lines on a mirror.
to sleep with you is to know the brightening.
but then i was all alone. the darkness.
full moon over the weeping willow tree.
once again, i hear the roar of engines.
michael, my michael, you came back for me.
to ride all night, to ride with an angel.
those wide white wings, a wild wind’s blow
eventually leaving me in hell.
above my crowned head, i see your glow
flying fearlessly across the sky.
you blaze out beautifully & then you die.
