Shade

Crest of gold filter through dingy blinds /

long and hot /

salty sweat like blood from a wound /

9 o’clock PM /

the sun still shining /

I want sleep /

with mother, in her womb /

a mother before learning to love /

the chill will unwind me /

seep between my bones /

freeze my fingernails /

steal this breath /

But Lord God in heaven /

would I be free of the Sun.

I hail from the sunny southwest. I wait, unkempt and unbidden.
