Disassociated – Ceresa Morsaint

It is a city of night
and blurry, orange lights.

A city of bridges
harboring secrets under the water.
I am here in flesh only.
A body on warm leather, cold windows.
and split from this-

I am floating.

In the constellation raindrops
on the glass of my window,
I connect dots,
to music

and the peaceful sounds of summer wind
