Dead Reckoning

by Jim Kacian
by candlelight a mosquito slow with blood
the wait for an owl the second time
whiskey i sip it till it loves me
long view to Sirius even the past isnít past
deep in space the red shift of my mind
starry night some noise of the Big Bang still left
on the verge of waking my self
skull held up to the ear the sound of the sea
bubbles up through green water the heat
