Crater Dweller

Tonight he stares at Earth
He sees women and men talking
Kings on steeds returning home
Wild brown bears crouched in corners
Mythological creatures turning to stone
Tonight he mills empathy from boredom
as silver spokes flash in headlight beams
Tonight he builds dream bridges, unburned
from there to here, touching Earth
He’ll char his shirt in the fire tonight
He’ll toast his mittens on furnace levers
to burn old heart’s desires into carbon dust
He’ll inch back, deeper into craters
always staring earthward with peepers aglow
until the dark side overtakes his heavenly view
