Nervous Moonlight

 

The moonlight filters through

The amnesia of portraits,

To hint at flesh

Emerging

Against silent windows,

The nervous system's lightning

Strikes

My fingernails scratching the wall,

for wallpaper.

 

I stare out the windows

At the cobweb boats,

And the swans gliding in the bay,

It is now dawn,

And soon new spiders

Will be born.
