this is no night of quiet stars

a dare perhaps.

to do more
than dip your toe in this ocean
as all the unswum seas
smash against the contours
of our earthly bodies in which
you have as many lives
as skins.

where the movement
of your body gestures
at the meaning.

this self portrait in words
like the shadows
as the day stretches
out into dark amplifying
the thunder in your bones.

this is no night of quiet stars..
