nightflight: pately bridge

brass meridian
acid drip of stars
a theoretical moon
in a black pasture

how do they navigate
who are darkwinged / darkeyed?
the stagbeetle spinning
out of coaldust
the rook a tremo
in the maw / a flutter
of rags & flesh
streaming in a
carbon wind

i know that what
i dance here
in gorse & heather
what i might sing
amongst nightstock &
blind lilies
breathless /
the song tethered
in the silence
that comes before
& follows on /
will configure all that
i am & all
i shall ever be
