OUTSIDE MY WINDOW
by Mike Patrick
The slit between the curtains by my bed
displays gossamer threads of light
dancing across the midnight sky.
Sparks of stardust etch stories
deep into my tangled mind.
Tales of serpents,
crawling through the bones of ruined temples,
flash through my being.
Sleep demands a cloud to find release
but none appears.
