Covetous Evensong

At night
When heavens peel back
Heavy eyelids,

I cross yon’ field to
Behind your
Large, empty house.

I peer with winced
Brow through
Knot holes in the pine.

And find you enisled,
Always beautiful
Beyond breath or muse.

A golden star in
Residence there.
Allure that both mends
And mocks me.

If I called out
Would you meet me
In this docile lea

Under moon’s
Jealous eye?
