boat of night

blackberry night
I cup the breeze

to my bellybutton
fingertip cool

curtains whisper 
thought patterns unplucked

two stars like boat hooks
hold all my fuzzy dreams

I watch and I sink
the rock of breath

legs like ropes
I am plait

I am fray

written for Whimsy Gizmo’s dVerse quadrille – a 44 word poem including the word “star”
