I don’t know why
I opened windows

to let in such heat
or why I’m almost

tempted to sleep
outside if not

that there’s no
such thing as safe

or shelter
might as well

accept it
the offer

of fresh air
and the way

the day
falls off

into night
and wakes

with a chill
blue moon

you know
just what

I am
here for


  1. Beautiful. I especially like the phrase, “a chill blue moon”. It’s just unusual enough to catch my attention, but not so odd that it takes me out of the moment. Highly descriptive.
