closets, basements, attics
tents. stairwells, beneath cars
spotlights on clouds
cops shining flashlights into your eyes
who are you? what are you doing here?
nothing officer, just on my way
eye exams, strong light flashing in your eyes
except the doctor doesn’t say
who are you? what are you doing here?

Northern lights, reflected explosions
giant fires far away, Perseid showers
when you are buried in a tunnel and
a light beam shines through the dirt
and you think, thank God
the light shining through your lover’s clothing
she is naked underneath
she knows you can see
because that is what she wants
