salvation

i looked for
a salve for
blisters beneath
marrow-
found only
lonesome songs and
starlight, eastward
tracks in a
desert of forever
night-
we found respite
in inner walls
where membrane divides
soul and blood-
what pain could you
possibly hope to heal
with salvation-
whether salve
or snake oil,
both pain and
starlight
remain-
