Natalie Crick



They were acquaint with one another.
He was capable of anything
Like Neptune the God.
Still and huge at Nocturn.

What would prevail?
Time moved on with rhythm
Even when they were together.
She rocked to it.

To touch the ground and
Melt into death.
The moon was his own thin, white spike.
They were themselves at times.
