Farther West

You think everything I say is lush
and promising today
because it is unseasonably warm
with a wild and heady wind
blowing from the west-
farther west
than we have ever been.

Beware the illusion
of floating roses in moonlight-
my toes firmly grip soil
even as I reach for you;
there is no navigating a spinning moon.
