Your Darkness Too

Black Butterfly Couple

after your dreams
all the butterflies were gone,
all the green grass.

there was a moment of silence
and I sat by you
and watched the sun go down–
past the meadow,
a meadow that overlooked
a winter ocean.

I never dreamed much
at night
and it never seemed to matter,
a man of pleasure
doesn’t dream much.

…and I whispered to you
with my beautiful voice:
Sometimes, ships sail empty,
but they still get there.
