Sunbathing but there is no sun because it's night comfortably reclining beach chair liberated legs stretched in front of you in a nondescript bathing suit (or one of your choice) you are not cold sunglasses on threefold tin-foil reflector rests in loose-fingered hands On the warm summer night, a softness falls over the desert the stars glimmer like sunlight sparking against sea waves You realize there is no moon now there is an eyeball (or is that what it has always been?
