  • standing on a rooftop barefooted
    looking up purple clouds
    of this suburban night sky of mine

    I pretend they are still
    and I am the one moving

    how deftly my legs race
    across the houses in the neighborhood
    treading over electric fences bird-like

    everything stands still
    and I am the one moving

    no alarms can ring
    and the dogs and cats bow:
    I’m the male Godiva whose visage would turn you into stone.

    close your eyes and stay still

    -I- am the one moving
