full moon splashes a midnight window

opening eyes, awake, drown in light: up!

shoes on, jacket zipped: out!

into the night: fly!


feet dance a dreamlit path

between shadows of shadows while

cypress rows, bathed in bluelight

stand stenciled against a shimmering sky 


life in the night light where

a jackrabbit chases

a bobcat glides

a bat darts


a beach at the end of her street

waves like shark fins

push poke pull

breaking surface tension


floating in dreamlight

she tilts her head back

closes her eyes

and drowns
