Beyond a reasonable doubt

It is a dream in which it is
a dream in which
you are about to be
placed on the wrist
of a stranger about
to place icecream on his wrist

Around you your sisters fall
they are red or around
you hailstones strain
like waterbirds attempting
flight from float

or they are redder
or ink blue you
reach for one
a red one or ink blue
it settles on your
index your white index

Their mouths are sealed
your sisters

with the weight
of sky behind it
it bores right through

The ink blue sky
the fact
the reason
the distance
