Nighttime Walk

Nighttime Walk

Slip into that pocket of darkness,

dizzying yourself with stars.

Hear your heart’s hinges snap open,

as you slide away from comfort

into the plump arms of madness.


Leave your day, your life, your name

shivering on your doorstep.

Move toward sweet, black freedom

on anonymity’s swift feet,

becoming a student of surrender
