(the provisional) X — [G]

out walk about
at night about
a time about
a think about
a predator about
your head

as the night eyes
of dark bright
wrap silent
from behind

it’s a spring night
in the uncrowded sky
you can see galaxies
like rain

after your short reflex
in flight
and the
assess realise relax

it’s a black night
no fog of lamplight
your eyes see in
the moonlight

the fluorescing blue white
of those bright wings
they glide fast away
a barn owl
