Castle on the Moon


I once stood on a platform
the universe spinning around me
silver slivers
of crescent ascending crescendos
beneath-above-around
vertigoing, vertigone
down the moonstone corridors
pupils are full tonight
gray-black-dots-blue-green-red-fire
back straight
bent knees
wrists inches from the waist
in balcony major.
