Día de los Muertos
Inuki

trucks rumble over
 1
the ambassador bridge,
 2
autumn leaves crunch
 3
beneath my steel toes;
 4
three arrows point down.
 5
 
 
above the apartment
 6
a single star dangles,
 7
the barren trees
 8
touch the skyline;
 9
light pollution
 10
rolling across the sea of city.
 11
 
 
gaudy christmas lights
 12
already erected;
 13
we make passionate love
 14
by the orange candle light,
 15
and pretend we can't remember
 16
the next awkward morning.
 17
 
 
fumbling out from under bed covers
 18
and into the underbelly of the beast.
