Beau Beausoleil

THREE NOTES

1.

Light crosses
the flanks of
the horses
as they run
past us

this is
the first secret
between us

2.

I write
inside
your sleepless
dreaming

I think
of the
fork
the knives
trembling
beside each
plate

I thought
I could fall
into you

3.

A shark
opens its mouth
to sing to us

but rips through
our flesh instead
