Somnolent Caterwauling

A dark, summer night melts the icy moon
With undying, undiscovered memories

From within the heart’s furnace.
Tomorrow’s eternal wick
Glows, golden, beyond reach:

Pinching fingers
Try their hand at cheating.

Phantasmal fantasy
Flicks dandruff shrugs
Off stooped shoulders -

Another galaxy rejoices.
The unbinding grasp

Releases somnolent caterwauling
From the screeching scratch

Of a desolate desert.
