Sighted in this soot – a gracious swan
who kissed the surface of my dream.
It sang in deepest longing for its kind
of black and white who don’t connect.
And then nocturnal darkness fell upon
the lonely wolf moon’s diamond eyes.
Forever parted from the sun it wailed
like fighting brothers who won’t meet.
