My #22 for National Poetry Month



light bulbs flicker,

unattended, wink out


darkness is a blanket

where i hide my face

unsee the distance

between us


it could be miles, or inches

neither matters

as i fall into

the space behind my eyes.


when the light flickers on

you will be gone again.


loose connections seem to be our way now.
