“sky shocked night” by Robin Wyatt Dunn

sky shocked night
terrific lashes
turning bright

the nails in the coffin of the blue
trembling

each one of us appointed
like idle children choosing teams
our regalia
only ordinary hats and shoes
shining

the bruised curl of midnight
extravagant
eternal
rubbing against your teeth

no mast will turn with us
we turn the horizon with our feet


Robin Wyatt Dunn was born in Wyoming in 1979. You can read more of his work at www.robindunn.com.
