Street Lamp

by  Adrienne Wolfert

The street lamp

distances the moon,

stars don’t stand a chance.

Night , the siren,

 sings our false voyages.

Point of View

by  Adrienne Wolfert

            At the bottom of the lake

the drowned watch

looks like a fellow species

to the incurious fish.

                           Scholars sift the sand, discover

each civilization’s grave atop the other.

Eternity’s the name we give

 the casual castaway of what is over.
