      day moon

      late comes the sun
      talking of you through the wires
      talking of you in tongues

      how can i feel worthy when
      my reflection of your face
      draws circles around the moon ?

      how can i
      climb this mountain of moonlight
      with silver nets to catch some stars . . . ?

      how can i
      bring rain to the dry weeds?

      sleeping with the words i sent to you
      is not sleeping

      sleep refusing to give me her kiss . . .

      sleeping till dawn
      brings shadows back into the world
      late comes the sun

      your smile in my hand
      in my head

      i would pay money to exorcise
      the scent of you singing

      to die on a thursday
      morning
      talking of you through the wires
      talking of you in tongues

      day moon . . .
      she can’t sleep either


      Quixotic as ever
