going somewhere? by Mark Prisco

The cat’s fur lights the dark on the other side

of the glass. Her tail

 

disappears, like a swish

white dress or a

 

fish, infinitely

Dear – darkness

 

shows me

 

Decidedly, I’m

pre-Aquarian. I tell you I have flown

 

over sea & mountain.

During the brandy, half dead,

 

I thought of it – the waves, &

beneath the surface, in the trenches…/

 

The mind stops.
