Heather Sager: A Lost Other

Image: Unsplash, downloaded ( 29.07.2023.

Lost in the Cosmos

the night constellation sky

is an infinity echo

of despair

the dream

of nuzzling a loved one

is cracked

the conversation

when we get to confide

never happens

warm gauze of calm

is frozen dead over

a guy leaves

on some fine pursuit,

never looks back at family left behind

death lurks around streetlamp

city corners

walking the chill urban street,

feelings inside a

hot summer

imagine the orbits

of a dreamer’s eyes,

his gem-green irises

search-lighting a lost other
