Ricochet

by October 29, 2023 0 comments

The moon is sleepwalking again. You bump into it
on the way to the kitchen for a 3am snack. Sleeping alone again.

This is what the barren desert of unwanted desire does —
a ricochet from the game of Russian roulette played in dreams.

Take the bullet. Take it.

Catch it in your teeth like a gift,
like the greatest gift you’ve ever received.

– D A Angelo
