Cut Out

End of a 3,000 foot descent, full
moon, stomach, tent. Out here just

us two will rehash Big Dipper, stars
shooting from the same nose. You fog

into a nebulous mood over chamomile
made from gray water. I look out there
at the brontosaurus canyon back. Look.

The black silhouette absorbs
dim sky until I swear to black
upon black as divisible. Away and

You don’t know. Ask me
to gaze. Folding up dusk for glitter

is like putting away
bare feet in snow.
