October Poem 54: Of Lights in the Dark

The hot air out through

Your lungs like the static and


Of silhouette on headlights

Bringing visions through fingers.


Visions of moonlight

Through my keyboard. Visions of

Stars the truncated

Length of dreams. Visions in black

And white strips of newspaper


Folded into birds

As the origami of

Drunk driving reports

Both on paper and online

In your dreams and the headlines.
