Some moments aren’t meant to be reclaimed 
The stars cut brighter then 
A trick of the light 
Or light interfering with light 
It’s all the same 
Improbable,  deep time. Fully ridiculous .
The sky is black  as an unlit room 
The seventh wave or breaking water 
With bridal eyes and the saddest smile 
You’ll know when you get there 
There’s the seas I’ve stepped in 
And the seas of my imagination. 
I’m happy,  and subdued 
Never as kind as I want to be 
Under the right conditions 
I’m never as cruel as I want to be
