Atlas

At night he lets his arms down
Wraps them around his love
And the stars slip into the sea
Until they come again
In the spindrift
And the breeze like a warm breath
Gives form to the sand
As the dunes rise to the sky
Becoming new stars
That fall again and again
Into the sea
In the chaos of his dreams
He swallows the moon
And glows in its borrowed fire
Until he lets her go
To give her the sun.
