Next time, cover the clock face.

indigo curtain descending / yellow-white and pixelated stars, mist of rain, instinct / bare wrists pulsing like satellites / on the floor twist alabaster sheets / and beneath sheets, a low song half-remembered / against my clavicle, we pin her lips and listen: hum of bees, wind, a hollow, the coming storm

                                    arsenic hours
                              tenderness unwinds
                                    the dark tide
