Too Much Light

I wrapped myself in a wet bed sheet
feeling cold and warm altogether
the wind bites at water’s edge
I fell asleep arms and feet bound
a clay giant slouching
nightmares run through my body
like a blue alcohol flame
freshly refined

the river stole my house
I found refuge between odds and ends
leaving the windmills at wind’s goodwill
to clear out clouds from the sky
at least at night
when stars are poking diadems
on virgin fronts

I’m swaying along with the sea
growing large inside stretching to the shores
a kingdom of wings and rocks
far from the world that unleashed me
I can’t fly I can’t petrify
tears sit still over my smile
they should have trimmed this ship’s sail
too much life got into light
embracing the wind completely
while ropes hurt

from my body a single night remained
crushed under midday’s cross
