Late September Midnight

Crickets scrape at being
like filing to a point
a point and place in time
to hammer into place…
something. A hinge on which
a universe might swing.
A universe that’s made
of hinges and of swinging.
A gate to anywhere
creaking in the moonlight.
And all coming and going
rubbed and rasped into dust
and nothing, and leaving behind
uncounted swirling motes.
