Night Altitude



Unlocal space,
bound by no more limit
than the pleasure of the skin;
unfelt, but for the flight
and progress through the night:

unlocal space, life and breadth
and day and night to lives
which, light as light,
in freedom share
the senses.

Look up at the moon;
untold the moons

but one body singled lightly
in a continent of sky.
