The stars are quiet…

“It’s no use going back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
― Lewis Carroll
borogroves

I’m taking
deep breaths
pausing in silence
searching for borogoves
with peculiar guidance…
I’m hidden in the undergrowth
breaking daylight
as I go,
hoping darkness will ignite
my standing in staccato… And I’ll sow
and tread
and break this fast
before daylight rises,
and it’s all
of everything
I dread
when the stars are quiet…
