Tierra Ouellette: Your Face After You Came
Re: Your Face After You Came
Two blood moons blotchy
and hung on either side of your face:
A pale daybreak.
The left moon filters and refracts,
beginning its retrograde.
The copper body sinks into the pillow.
Spectral and absolute.
Turned away from me is how I prophesied you.
