DINNER

Rain on the

roof.

 

Shubert on the

radio.

 

Embrace you from

behind

 

to nuzzle your

neck,

 

as you sauté’

mushrooms.

 

You turn and

smile.

 

I set the

table,

 

setting short candles

alight.

 

Begins to rain

harder.

 

Twinge through-out my

being.

 

Dinner is quietly

served.

 

 

CANDLELIGHT

Dancing

ghostlike

up

the

solid

walls.

Slightly

smoking,

to

gather

like

puzzle

pieces,

on

a

white

ceiling.

Flickering

images

of

life

and

death…

past

and

future…

only

seen

with

the

right

set

of

eyes.

Intelligence,

short

of

light.
