earthly unearthly

a body of flesh

corporeal,
among black trees

the sky is clear,
white stars, the white of time

in deep night the ravine is earthly,
unearthly, the crawling capillaries, the trees' ghost fingers
dissolving into an inscrutable
black pool

eyes cannot make it out

further into the
day ravine
is a necessity

to know it, a little,
a little as it knows so well.

further into the
night ravine
is a dark dense place

in my mind

full of earthly stones and

moss and branch rendered unearthly

by the sprawling flood
of light's absence
