I write / last night I watched dark clouds / stream cirrous across the moon

The time it takes the
i to enter is is the
time it takes two ideas
to relate is the time
it takes the sun to rise
to where it is this
instant. I write
last night I watched dark clouds
stream cirrous across the moon
.
And now the blue of the sky
feels like dime candy on my tongue.
