“sky shocked night” by Robin Wyatt Dunn

sky shocked night
terrific lashes
turning bright

the nails in the coffin of the blue

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

the bruised curl of midnight
rubbing against your teeth

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