Samuel S. Williams


It strikes us
like a ball from Wembley
arching across the starless sky.

Clouds break apart
allow it to reach through
like a fingertip
dipping into the atmosphere.

We talk werewolves,
and howl with laughter
at the slipshod shadow puppets
we make under the streetlamp.

Snake. Rabbit. Dove.
