.:  heliotropic

i cannot sleep.

i was outside with a cigarette, blowing smoke at insects circling the porch light. a headache behind my right eye, belt undone, shirt unbuttoned, watching dazed moths crash-land against the side of the house.

...

Heliotrope.

in back porch inky darkness
the moon drops;
sodium light refracted
     on prefab rooftops

through our silvershot window:
     a sigh,

in polished measure
dawn climbs up;
hot orange fingers flexing lusty
     over creosote leaves

against my shoulder, a restoration:
     your breath.
