Complete Poem


Moth-Terror, by Benjamin De Casseres



I have killed the moth flying around my night-light; wingless and dead it lies
upon the floor.

Some days my thoughts are just cocoons -- all cold, and dull, and blind,
They hang from dripping branches in the grey woods of my mind;

And other days they drift and shine -- such free and flying things!
I find the gold-dust in my hair, left by their brushing wings.
