• “Big with Dawn"

    Yesterday: me, a stone, the river,
    a bottle of Jack, the clouds
    with unusual speed crept by.

    A man was in the middle of me.
    I was humbled.
    Not by him. The earth,

    with its unusual speed,
    went from dawn to dusk to dawn.
    Just like that. The light

    every shade of gold. Gold. I’m
    greedy for it. Light is my currency.
    I am big with dawn. So hot & so

    pregnant with the fire I stole.
    By pregnant I mean everything
    you see is of me. Daylight

    is my daughter. Dusk, my lover’s
    post-pleasure face. And the night?
    Well. Look up.

    Are you ever really alone?”
