LIGHT by B. S. Roberts

I watch the stars

               as they swell below,

a motion

               ineffable as time

casting my corporal form

               in foam –

with a burst

               my immaterial shell fountains

                                 stealing [freeing]

                my transfluent thoughts

                                   whisking them away

I see you in celestial light

your curvatures mimic

          the crescent moon

tantalizing glimpses

           of all that you are

body and soul
