after Jonny Lang’s Wander This World
I arrived on the noise of familiars,
like diving into water, returning home.
Slim-shouldered and late blooming,
I lurched forth on more than mere
instinct to lean back to the extrinsic,
morphine-kind. To hold me here,
I would lose nights into the avenues,
passing through hands with downward
stride, making ghosts by their right-
ful names. Only, I was the dying
of the afternoons, jeweled back-lit by
the city headlights, discarded to
my quaint lurch more ancient than love,
an egress of vagabond in indigo pink.

Oh the mystery of traveling in the nightlight, worded brilliantly.
Reblogged this on The Biblioanthropologist.
Stunningly otherworldly and such a perfect close. Well done.
