NIGHT CANDLES

by on August 2, 2021 :: 0 comments

street lights,
weak and bland,

exposing those
browsing
and
those desiring

gods and
goddesses
loitering,
bending into,
leaning away,
guarding carefully
hushed exchanges

they walk
and turn,
shadows following
to the next light
where hearts wait
to be wanted

editors note:

What all of us deities desire. – mh clay
