A SUNRISE HANGING

Here, where all I want is to remember
anything,
here, where my past hangs taut in the moonlight
behind the clouds,

anything
I see
behind the clouds
exists only through your mentioning.

I see
swing-set memories and love that
exists only through your mentioning.
Grant me wishes,

swing-set memories and love that
ends tomorrow,
grant me wishes
if only for the conflict.

Ends tomorrow,
you can’t allow them to begin,
if only for the conflict.
I’d rather you not.

You can’t allow them to begin;
please, don’t take this moment away.
I’d rather you not.
To fall in love with…

Please don’t take this moment away.
I long for such a sight
to fall in love with,
and I cherish the day.

I long for such a sight,
this sunlight to shield the moon,
and I cherish the day;
breathe her in as a gift.

This sunlight to shield the moon,
I worship its grace and
breathe her in as a gift,
A sense of opacity.

I worship its grace and
live in my faint shadow:
a sense of opacity.
But my future rises in the east.

Live in my faint shadow,
here, where my past hangs taut in the moonlight.
But my future rises in the east,
here, where all I want is to remember.
