I walked my loneliness home

under the roar and fiery roil of stars

crickets sang the night deep gold

alone	 alone

I read the dew-gathered asphalt runes

illumined by streetlights

and the wan, desirous moon

you were somewhere

alive in the world

walking at night

hearing the song

Ingrid Swanberg circa 1980
