Here the sun is emphatic, 
entering  rooms just after five

and falling in blocks across
the comforter.  We stayed up 

past one to watch the moon,
the honey moon, rise over

the lake, electrifying it.  
But all I cold say was wow. 

It’s been days since I last
woke at 3 am, I can’t say

I miss it but in some ways 
I do.  There was a spider

tracing the floorboard, right
as I turned out the light.

I killed it — usually don’t, 
but  there’s too many

poisonous ones here.
It seems things still get

a little wilder at night, 
but these days I sleep

through everything, and 
wake with bites.
