extinguished

Extinguished, I understood the need, light always looking
to the other, partnered to darkness, the waning.

The absent moon.
The wholeness of night.
The equatorial heat.
Everything pulling to its center.

The longing of what is not had.
Never a mind that has not wandered where it did not belong.

This heat is not yours. This moon is mine.
