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.
