Fresco Heaven

 

Il Giudizio Universale Sistine Chapel: The Last Judgment - Michelangelo

II Giudizio Universale Sistine Chapel: The Last Judgment – Michelangelo

I want to sit next to you, Michelangelo —
beneath your painted-ceiling heaven
and muse at the secrets of life,
death, and creation —
for this is as close
to heaven as I’ll get.
Let me make wishes
upon your painted stars
like long-distance calls to God
until He judges and disconnects —
while little painted angels
roll their eyes at me.
I am only a soul,
dressed in skin;
innocuous sinner
who stings with life —
looking for my place
in your fresco heaven.
