Response to Claire Bateman's poem, "Unearthing the Sky."

...a great big glorious suffering thing
further damaged
by the very means of its rescue,
the violence of pulleys & clamps...
Toddlers wearing ... hard hats...
... floodlights...
Millions of stitches, hand-sewn...
...liquid mercury, black diamond plasma...
releasing the sky at last...
