Charles Bane, Jr.

 

Goodnight

Goodnight, my love

sleep here beside me

my lifelong man. My

champion who hurls against

cobblestones the fears I reserve

for he, whose shoulders arch

city streets and deeper still

on concourses of sheets. I wonder

which of his ribs made me. Dust

settles in the sky as we name

fleeting things we have seen.

Light will dim eventually my

compass, glass and archer and

I will streak west contentedly.

 
 2014 Charles Bane, Jr.
