At first, erratic stories,
Chronology sliding into chasms.
Facts lost to the night.

Meteorite cascades,
Dislocated spin and dip.
A choked season.

Now, the careful lexicon,
Completed pages,
And the flat heat
Of Three Cliffs Bay.

And the fire on the arc of eclipse subsides.

Warm gravities,
Silent space,
Light on its long trajectory.
