Orpheus and Eurydice

by James Knight

1

Moonlit clouds
hard as bone

A row of houses
seen from behind,
some trees:
pieces of a stage set

A parked car murmurs
muffled music

Peek inside
through misted glass

She’s under him, twisting

A circle of yellow light moves over them

2

Afterwards,
humming a tune,
he sits up, runs a hand
over the back of his neck

That all you got?

He looks back at her
and she looks away;
she’s elsewhere
already

Somewhere else,
in another story:
a timer reaching zero

A curtain of cloud covers the moon.
