Enigma

Like pieces of a puzzle
you are scattered
across the room
detached – cool as
the moonlight spilling into
the window stroking the line
of your jaw

a cat climbs through the window
and your mouth twists
into a momentary smile
as enigmatic as a falling star
dark as the midnight cloak
which shelters us
until dawn creeps
in on stealthy
paws
