Magnesium


There’s a reason
why I listen
to Ali Akbar Khan
until it’s dawn.

I pulled it out of my puzzle box
and tasted it
bitter and beautiful
just to see the moon shine
again.

I’ll be brewing tea
all day tomorrow
pondering what move to make next
on the chess board of my soul.

How could it have come to this?
I can’t believe my eyes.
It will never be so simple
again.

We embrace
each other
and the moment
because we can.
