There is no

perfect moment,

there is only

now and then.


this invention

with a mind

wide open.

I let it in,

and I let it wonder.

I close my eyes and

fall asleep.

Did I wake up,

or am I dreaming?

Nothing here

is ever as it seems.

I spoke the words,

I lit the fires.

In masquerade,

wearing faces

that were not mine.

I faced the night,

every word a flame.

I called out to you,

speaking all your names.

I know you’re out there.
