I dreamt that we made love in the grass
and walked beneath the plump moon
We kissed at twilight,
and chased the sunset’s glow
We stood on the hot turf,
and it shone from all four corners of the earth.
I felt the mauves and pink hues warm my face
They kissed my cheeks
and told me not to fear the dark,
For they would soon return
We lay in the weeds and tossed as the stars broke through their black mask
You whispered promises you would not keep
and I took them anyway.
Swirls of cosmos danced round
and took my weak arms into theirs,
As if to say goodnight
