Be what you are. 
As night falls, 
I start moon spotting 
standing starkly against the pain. 

Reaching for you 
from you, in― 
moonless night. 

The relationship of 
dream blood, was never 
seen but heard. 

The pursuit of location 
where the eclipse descends like a dot 
on truth. 

I am going to touch 
the surreal constellation 
again in your wet eyes.
