The Little Things by Austin Davis


The Little Things

In the
three minutes
night and day,

the grinning moon
decided to share
it’s pale spotlight

with you,
sitting cross legged
in the dark grass,

caramel hair
sheathed around
my neck.

Like the
midwest woods
on a
cloudy afternoon,

I watched your eyes
break from their
brown cocoon.
