hide with me

in the unfinished corner

of creation


from Hannibal,

Busta Rhymes,

and Google


Matthew McConaughey

will have no power

until sundown.


we will play yahtzhee in the dark,

the dice with convex dots

so we can feel something


there are lightning bolts

in our eyes and we can split trees

by looking.


let’s read

the curvature

of the horizon

to each other

fingers thrust into the copper blood soil

your face deep in citrus and silver.

it’s dark but for your thoughts

and the full clouds.
