I CANT BELIEVE

WHAT WAS SAID,

THOSE LIGHTS

MOVING AMONG THE LEAVES.

THE SOUNDS THAT WERE HEARD

WERE NOT PLACED AS I’D LIKE.

I WOULD NOT TAKE THEM

AS THE POINT OF KEEPING THEM.

EVERY ONE SOUNDED AS THOUGH

THERE WERE A BODY WITHIN.

BUT IT WAS NOT LIKE THAT.

THERE WERE NO BODIES,

THERE WAS NO DANGER.

I CAN DRINK SUCCESSFUL

WITH THE MOON OUT THERE,

US BOTH SO FAR AWAY.

I CAN DRINK A CUP FULL

WITH THAT SAD TUNE OUT THERE,

US BOTH SO FAR AWAY.

THE NEED TO WALK FROM

WHERE IT IS LOUD

FEELS LIKE THIRST.

YET MY CUP IS FULL

OF WHAT KEEPS ME

RIGHT HERE NEXT TO THE NOISE.
