A dance of dim lit flint glitter
Shower of handheld constellations
What a beautiful sight to see you so close once
As bright
As fleeting
Retained without the ability to reflect
As true spoken
As seen briefly
A flicker amongst nowhere
Of your knowing
Seen briefly against the chrome
Cover of Zippo lighter,

Stuck in expectation
Mouth moving in front of trusted
Yet nothing genuine escapes,
Intoxicated again
This time the basement on 2nd street
The faces are soft
Smiling and not imposing
A textbook example of memory slips
Dangered by sobriety
A puddle of circling similes bleeds
From a scraped knee

Time taken
Counted paces to hand prints embedded
In absence of witness
These thoughts make sense,
Setting them free with solemn flame
Miles away in a sanctuary
Stream adjacent,
A place where the birds and trees harmonize hymns
Solstice to solstice
