what the light brings

is danger explosive
mildly reclusive
humor intrusive

witness pervasive

darkness refusing
smartness soon losing
freedom gone grooving
excuses for grooming

what the light brings

is outline of small things
like links to a bird wing
the slide of a snail’s singing
a drunken poets refrain

what the light brings

is parent and none
child and the gone
husband and the won
preserved and the forlorn

how can I be happy and sad
at the same time

like the light and the dark
in the same room

how can I drink the wine
that means body and blood
that lifts to the moon

what the light brings

is forgiveness to forget
stumble with promise
you have not yet met
smirk without guilt
light knows no regret
