the streetlight sutra

spent the night gone mad
with memory and
when it's like that
watching trees move
makes so much sense
you just float off
knowing it

and some nights, like
this one is best to have
on an empty stomach
and long before it's time
to try again at things

or trip around trying
not to see anything at all

so i spent, with laughing eyes
the night let loose in
my own mind set free
from now for a few hours
and watching days pass
that i haven't watched pass
in years but always knew
it'd be good to watch
again sometime and the
funny part is how even
the dark days were lovely.

or maybe it's not funny,
but still.
