Imperfect Sonnet

Imperfect Sonnet
by Michael R. Burch

A word before the light is doused: the night
is something wriggling through an unclean mind,
as rats creep through a tenement. And loss
is written cheaply with the moon's cracked gloss
like lipstick through the infinite, to show
love's pale yet sordid imprint on us. Go.
We have not learned love yet, except to cleave.
