Sunset/Sunrise


Sunset: curtain up.

Lie here and ponder

the underside of the bed.

 

Curl up in utterances of your name.

Let my soul slide sideways,

seeking your palm.

Fall asleep wondering when you will arrive,

if ever.

 

Sunrise: curtain down.

Curse the birds, and the sun,

and my heart,

that longs for phantom fingers

curled up in my hair.
