Before Blanket and Bed

3 Jan

 

Sometimes the lights
float
behind the panes
inside a space
warmer
than where your heart stands.
But shadows
just out of
sight,
dense brown,
dark and still
against the floor,
can somehow heat the heart’s  beating
even while you’re holding it
on the sidewalk
under the cold stars,
bright and turning.
