my only caller is the
nightfall, loosening and growing heavier
on my chest like a drunken lover dozing
I tend to wish upon the moon
instead of the stars, because she knows me
like she knows her craters.
(star)dust bunny stirring in the sky,
she gazes down at me, that cold stare—
one eye open in sleep.
I am a shadow turned inside out.
