Rebecca Kokitus


upstate


something in the way my
heart swells when the night sky
is threadbare. cigarette burns in
velvet that heaven shines through.
the moon holds my gaze so I know
magic is real.

empty interstates like scars
on a mountain range, sallow
streetlamps of sleepy hillside towns,
I trace constellations between them
from the passenger seat.
these are towns I could hide in
like dark matter for the rest of my life.
