Night Works

By | 31 October 2012

where do you come from?
a half slice of orange
about to be dunked
in a chocolate sea

you are always there
behind midnight clouds

I come outside
to listen
to the wind in the trees
but find you instead

& soon forget
the wind
& the hour
as I watch you tipping
45 degrees

before the clouds
spill their ink on you
so you disappear again

I stay a little longer
& watch you born again

you could even be
a full moon!

but no
you’re a slice of orange
dissolving above the horizon

embers glow now
the wind may coax
you back to life

but not my breath
destined for deeper
of sleep
