Poems By M. Ana Diz

Before falling asleep

Greedy tongues slowly quiet down
as trading light closes up shop.
All stories of the light melt into the quiet.

In the dark, eyes still open, I meet my shadows
in a permeable place with no inside or out.
Feet explore corners of cold between fresh sheets.
Body stretches, recoils, owns the space.

I’m alive
as the stone, the stream, the fragile birds and greens.
