long night in the window

When sun sets on suburbia
A goldfish glow fills the bed window
And slowly night finds me in
Calm and calmer in a night new
When the big wish wash moon
Fills fawn eyes wide and wider
With the light and the power
It uses to pull mind tides
It’s long and prolonged
And a blue black pin cushion
Sharp star pins circle slowly
Transfixed and I can feel them moving
But fade and elapse to burst glittering dawn
Still hold the attention of the fawn
Long blinking in wonder
Why is it so hard
To fall asleep sober
