Evening Wear/ Three Masks by Nate Maxson

A dark sky sanctuary/ where they don’t let the light in without a permit
In earlier days the philosophers talked of angels and needles and endangered species
All the self-important people who say they built the world
Now it’s all something about: how many ghosts can fit inside the machine?

The first time we ever touched the moon
A clown car paradox
While we’re still laughing

A still and snow covered field
When the sun’s going down
Windless
At night
I never feel the cold
