As Last Night Passes My Eye

By David Duenas

As last night passes my eye
I recall that
you were there too,
Suspended
In the center of the room
So all
eyes
were on
you

But when I forced
you down to
Return my stare
There was only the weightlessness

And wasn’t that what had always
held
you up, glittering so
fancifully on the wet skin
of so many men, up there
Beyond us, such a sad
And empty oblivion
