A Night

horace1-2x

 

Once I seized a night

with all its darkness and stars

its semicircle moon and promises-

I gulped down its love words

in a man’s voice…….in gallons-

till my intoxicated soul

was drowned in a heady dream

of a never ending night-

where my words were songbirds

snuggling together to stay warm

to make it through all life-
