[NEAR BOZEMAN, MONTANA]
by Sarah Maclay

[Bedroom Light]
"Bedroom Light"
by Steve Hanks

The gray cloud's sunburned shoulder
settles into the field,

sinking into mauve, into night.
Horsetail threads across the copper.

I give in
to the need to feel you

lift me in the way a feather,
not a knife,

might lift a curtain slightly
from its stage.

Night, the cloud, rolls over
on its bed of straw.
