was never meant
to take the night alone.
Stars drift through the shallows
of its black plate, and the air
soft as the back of thighs,
and dark as a square of night.
And the moon
turned its face away, and stared
deep into earth’s mirrored water,
waves turning like pages.
For Twiglet #265 “turning pages””. WikiArt Image: Noekken, 1904, by Theodor Severin Kittelsen ©Misky 2022 Shared with #amwriting #apoemaday on Twitter
