The Power of Night by Fianna (Fiona Russell Dodwell)

and   casts   it   wide   –   new   energy   sustaining   night.
now she lifts her arms, her darkening cape
bruised blue bruised grey
till it’s a smear of red
breathes it into lungs
into legs, belly
sucks it
she
She sits on the horizon sun cupped between her feet
she
sucks it
into legs, belly
breathes it into lungs
till it’s a smear of red
bruised blue bruised grey
now she lifts her arms, her darkening cape
and   casts   it   wide   –   new   energy   sustaining   night.
