Samantha Lucero – Mysteries in sleep
pathetically, on each others
haystack-shapes. on your borrowed grayling shades
cupped on resoled leather in an elbow crook,
shoelaces the hometown pillow.
pathetically, inside unmanageable whispers
whose grief for us to segment stars
that arc in the blind-sky, that
which night mysteries immortally disunite–
is yet unkempt; is insolvable.
pathetically, in oblong boxwoods, in
close brumation to each other,
& we opine, to that cockcrow vapor stealing us,
