Day and Night

The dawn makes much of me,

flooding as she does

over the delta of dark.

The cowardice of night,

the dryness on the dark,

amaze me like

the paranoia at the foot of

my bed,

gnawing his hands

and begging for bandages.

Dawn always grows up.

Noon holds me in

a vice grip,

and I yearn for my shadow

and his praise of me.


sun turns to chaos

and things separate.

Evening falls like linen

on my hair.


I brave the coming dark,

already thirsty,

as the light flows

to her next season.
