Our New Season

If I’ve done nothing else

then I’m here with you—

the bedroom’s September window

nights full of stars

sky minus fires

the darkness still alive

with the songs of wings rubbing

it can still be hot—

but the mornings signal

what we’re in for

our bodies entwined in prayer:

that we hold out in case

of unmerciful winter.
