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.
