String of Lights

24 December 2013


A blighted
by strings
of tiny
fiery lights
each with an essential right
to tell
the story

of the spark

that travelled
from its start
in darkness
a tangled
wiry route
to mark
all the important parts
in the plot

until the last

of the lamps
is warmed
for the one
and the many
to behold
and the neighbors
who try in vain to seem alone
and to remain
