New year’s day

 

Light breaks

above chimney pots

blue light behind grey

 

Fireworks cracked at midnight

as if fending off invaders

& the house parties swung

along the street

 

love unfolding over kisses

& moonlight.

 

Even the gulls are quiet

puppy chews her tail

& out at sea waves break

 

thoughtlessly.

 

I’m drowning for sleep

my eyes gritty, my mind on

go slow, this no man’s day

 

where memory lingers

& wishes might come true.
