Rainforest Night
by Andrea Ferrari (aferrari@stmariy.edu.ar)

feeble,
the cabin light mocks
overpowering stars in their blue
but cannot hold more than
two or three rows of ghost trees
lichened white
against the pools of black
beyond
like wells of dark water, hanging

songs of creatures swirl the quiet

a moth golden insists on light
like paper
and hovers as my writing
on the shadows of
the night.
