“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”

― Mary Oliver


the moon taps at the wind,
its light dancing with the shadows
and the insipid
bleeding of the streetlamps

voices,
lunar and fragmented
escape from the soft television
up a flight of stairs

the clouds are these whispers
of the more realistic things
that block out its light

causes the sky
not to break
with too much
white
