Back To Main

new moon

new moon night
dancing inside the jungle
my feet are leading me away from the party
along a narrow dirt road
no flashlight
can’t see the ground

stars sparkle through the tree tops
music fades as i’m
drifting further and further away
trusting my steps
letting my legs predict the way

bumping into a parked jeep
climbing up to sit on the hood
cold breeze smoothes my body
engine is still hot
gently warming me up

nature and humanity
have collaborated
simultaneously taking care of me
