A passing squadcar shines a searchlight

peering through the window
across the ceiling-catching the light fixture
a momentary mirror ball
then down the wall-illuminating a framed print-Degas
until it finds our bed
catching a corner of your face
pale skin
dark strands of hair
and your lips

rubies on midnight cloth
speaking words only my heart knows
