Carriage Lights

 

 

Carriage Switch

Sunset sneezes.
Electricity creaks
through the veins
of the carriage.

It flies up in lights
pulled by horses
who trot on night.

Midnight blinks.
Stars sing
before
de-illumination
at dawn.

Sea Dreams

Brig 1856 (Gustave Le Gray)

 

Sea Dream

We stray
in early shadows
on the shore.

The city melts inside your eyes,
its shoreline blurs between my toes.

A lone yacht sails
on sepia dreams,
in open sky,
and sea
and
dawn.
