in a fitful, sleepless state, she finds me

in a fitful, sleepless state, she finds me

night skitters across silent rooftops
mad starless gales howl “could have beens”
midnight sleet spittles “what-ifs”
shapeless trees shush regret
things go bump in it
as it settles
night mutates
shaping
dreams
***
