Dark Day

"Defender Argo, expired September 1911, processed 2014," by Alison Rossiter

Dark Day

Dark afternoon in late spring you are
a reprieve A whole week of sunlight
and gentle air and baby lamb clouds
and we could use a good storm Every
night darkness feels like confirmation
of winding-down-ness but it isn’t that
simple If night had a message it might
be that we stagger toward sleep alone
to drift away from the self A buoy
being carried by water I close my
knowledge of the world for tonight
How little I know of the coming truth
