Night Rolls Over: Stephen Fuller & Christine Ray

A Gecko and Mouse collaboration.  Please visits Gecko at To Be Determined to read more of his amazing work.


This still, lonely hour
Removes our masks
Strips us to bone and shadow.

Angels dance naked
on moonlight laughing
underneath waterfalls.

Cold water drips
from goose pimples
invoking hidden Gods within us

We grab hold of a wing
Rip a feather from its rib
And dip it into the falls

Let icy ribbons ink our skin
Carve new features
Into the alabaster face

We focus moonlight
On dried skins
And let them catch fire

The flames that singe
Into our naked shadow
Dance like holy spirit inside

Our night rolls over
Onto its backside
Holding down the day.
