passing familiarity

grass 1

the night
does not shine
she doesn’t show

she keeps her cloak
worn tightly

only the distant light
only the luminous elsewhere
invades her spaces

what shade is green
at in darkness

is night life a blur
or is it
I
moving too fast
to take it in

I know these things
in daylight
I know them well

but here
I am the stranger

here
I am alone
realizing
the transience
of the familiar
grass 2
