Floodlight The moon’s blank tambourine amplifies the drizzle’s guitar— fragile droplets bruised become sunlit wires of rain. The rising world finds ruined fountains, broken stonework converted to carry running streams. The wounded sleep to dream again, when the day’s pain assembles then disbands. Loss stretches forward to its instruments, unpacks the stars, unravels the tide. Morning pools the night.
