Through the Holes

by January 21, 2014 0 comments

I caught you in the air
like a lightning bug you glowed
between my hands my feet
left the ground we tumbled
and twirled flickering pheromones
in crackling air

our effervescence could not
be harnessed could not be saved
in a glass jar with a lid you escaped
through the holes and became
swallowed in the night

editors note:

Let your fire fly; laugh in the escaping light. – mh
