Letter to Light Chasers


I will not hide my grief for your fragile coze,
lying is far too much work.

Stop changing the subject to brighter inabriations,
yesterday is not up for revision.

Be with me here, for
this is where I am

and from your courageous seat beside me,

See how I move this night
in quiet glow

as currents rise,
rich with shadow.
