Day + Night

I reached for you
in the dead of night
You sliced me open


speaking in tongues.
Were you dreaming?
Frightened by a
nightmare?

[Silence]

She leans back, admiring
the ribbon of smoke
evaporating before her.
A temporary forever;
the guiding light before
darkness sprawls across
the skyline like
a two-dollar whore
