Random Poem:

on mozart or beethoven and constellations.
midare

i am turning now
 1
in graceless motion
 2
as i did
 3
so many months ago.
 4
 
 
i wonder:
 5
what have you done?
 6
where have you gone?
 7
because this hour has stretched
 8
for miles and for dreams
 9
beyond my reach.
 10
 
 
we wouldn't have known this, you
 11
and i. we couldn't have predicted
 12
how this separation
 13
would fill
 14
my imagination
 15
to the point
 16
of rupture.
 17
 
 
i no longer dream in color
 18
nor in picture
 19
nor sound.
 20
 
 
yet i see more deeply, further,
 21
far enough into this
 22
distance
 23
to connect constellations
 24
out of my darkness
 25
and string stars
 26
toward each direction
 27
i have never known.
