your sun’s what they come for/ when they come for you


I silence sun
only in the desert
seams increase the difference
degrees between night and day

horizons shrivel
squinting oasis
our symbols sand

mercy saturates
still the expanse


I have no flock pride or pack

even the sun has constellations
the river tributaries

is there such a thing as a tree or forest
us versus the masses

these night questions hatch
til dawn gathers light and gloom

my sun is on my shoulders
my absence knows no borders
