Under the cover of Dreamtime air
_________________________________


Under the cover of stars made rare
By smog and scarce perception
I wonder, reflect and inhale the light
Of all that distant aerie.

I yearn and admonish the plaything self
That made my youth so vibrant,
And she that made circles about my sky
Still laughs at the horizon.

The contrails and smog and the fumes of the cars
had made the sunset bleary:
and I was left seeing delusions of grandeur
bright, in dancing phosphenes.

A smell and a touch of the telltale smoke
Had set my mind emblazoned —
Etched the with color and anguish of joy
Until I long forgot love.

The dust and the wind and the sounds of night
Are making constellations
Where memoir infinity makes its waves
In all the dun dimensions.

The chapters and titles and themes of my book
Are fraught with repetition:
A cycle, a play of my bone and my blood
Where characters slow perish.

The strange and the distant grow porous and harsh,
Made grim by the familiar —
And that which I knew as the palm of my hand
Collapsed — event horizon.

This nothingness, bleak as the moment of death
And as rapturous, ravenous too,
Has swallowed my pain and my joy and my breadth
And I am made close to you.

Under the cover of stars made rare
By smog and scarce perception
I wonder, reflect and inhale the light
Of all that Dreamtime air.
