encumbrance

Somewhere a deer prances in a meadow

green and lined with wildflowers and weeds.

The sky outside is pale

a planet shielding its surface from

the Star of the show.

 

“do lunar cycles matter?”

he wonders passively as tired eyes scan inward

the sheets flecked with dirt

damp from sweat.
