on sabbatical

All of you, I’m embarking.

A boat without a map


sailing through winds that shout.

I have gone to look


for a piece of beauty

to hold in my hands, bring close


to my chest, calm my heaving.

I’m on my way to the sky.


The light will drink me empty.

I will be nothing,


not even a ghost to haunt

your head. I will be free


and you are too, from my lies

that fill the gap in kisses.


I’m over seeing a slew

of broken faces. I’m exhausted


to bring you the sun

when I’m no better than the night.


I have gone to look for a new moon

to chase in place.
