I almost made it to the park

I almost made it to the park,
the one smelling like an
untamed jungle,
where wild things rub
against rough trees,
leaving little tufts of fur
clinging to the bark.
I almost made it to the park,
but the spirit of the night
nudged me toward ten
thousand constellations
rumbling through the sky,
and I could not help
but take two others with me,
strangers in the flesh,
but kindred spirits,
and we watched
Cassiopeia’s Crown
crumble into dust.

Desiccated remains of a saguaro cactus, Sonoran Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona

in untamed places
things twisted and forgotten—
distant is the plum

driving her deeper
into the wasted places—
untamed affections
