Summer Night




fast hand wings

of evening bats

streak through stellar space

flying and falling

between dark pines

cupped ears far above me

are snaring echoes

I do not hear

and I cannot decipher

the flying points of light

flashing in my eyes

and in the trees

a million voices

not meant for me

the red sun has gone

and left me here

alone on warm land

under a purple sky

surrounded by

the inscrutable signals

of other lives
