Here in the low drone of a high-flying plane

over the north side of the planet somewhere

way out in the stratosphere

where the night globes of radiance

soft as the touch of her tongue

on the center of your own

inner turbulence

cradle your once and future thoughts

the second is transfixed


In that glow of night light

my soul
