Moments I

night screamed at our ventilator
bulbs had blown their heads off

in the dilute light of your eyes,
slow, i circled circles of love
distant like a tern

up, stars whimpered softly

  1. I read the title as “Moment Sigh.”

    To me, this is about a mother caring for her very sick child. The illness is chronic, which requires 1) more love than you ever knew you could muster, but also 2) a distancing of your heart in a way, in order that you might be his/her nurse day and night, knowing there might always be a turn for the worse around the corner. Your pain is unspeakable, and only the heavens can possibly understand the depth of your sorrow and love. The stars are weeping with you.
