they pulled off their shirts the light through their chests shone dark dreams slowly gathered
yellow golden fire red
towered beech casts its light
skin sun hot, salt streaked
roof terrace shower ice shock
light slants; we make our own rainbows
than the star
they pulled off their shirts
the light through their chests shone dark
dreams slowly gathered
light on two horizons
days end as ours begins
the joy of being together
I’ll take the shadows.
They are only possible
because your love shines bright.
K wondered at the three moons in the sky then saw
they were night-window reflections
of the electric lights above her.
clouds cast shadows beyond
tell me you remember
The sky was night-black when the last star was inked out.
The sky was night-black but the people remembered.
The sky is night-black but the warm dawn is arriving;
Keep the door open and the fire well-stoked.
