elbow deep

Last night I don’t remember
          watching the stars
                   just you

      A shade swathed
in deep cognac tones
      still burned into my brain
              milliseconds before
     fading into shadow

Cardboard bodies burn

               &      tentatively
          I don’t remember reaching for more

               but I believe it
