Nervous Moonlight


The moonlight filters through

The amnesia of portraits,

To hint at flesh


Against silent windows,

The nervous system's lightning


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.
