the night is like that
 
“The Night is Like That” by Saddiq Dzukogi sometimes the night is like that she becomes hungry and sits quietly like a dove picking shadows out of its feathers according to the owl its hoot is the only meal likely to obligate this beggarly body tipsy under a moon’s swollen eyes i said i’d ask why she has no neighbor the night is not saying anything about itself sometimes the night is like that during the day she tracks to basements & below cradles and lies there like a girl who is upset sometimes the night is like that salient as goodbye
