Insects

On the night-sky-breasts
your attic’s head
remains alight to learn how to be fed
on the twilight’s lactation and survive.

Here exists no noise except
the exceptions accepted –
trees, honking in the lane, crickets.

And you forge a cave with your right hand
on your left palm where you resurrect
an insect becoming winter.
