-how to seduce the night, Rio de Janeiro 2016
On a rooftop in a rainstorm
he kissed the night into being.
High above the city of sleepless dreams
he gathered moonlight on his fingertips,
and cast love upon the midnight hued sky.
To a chorus of thunder and gunshots
he seduced the night
and made love to the stars.
I have not forgotten what it feels like
to become the calm after a storm.
