WordSong

Summer
Morning’s broken light:
And who was saved again
Last night?

‘Twas me, I think,
Although in pain
Of conscience, portal,
Heart, and brain —

We ran the mortal
Curtain down:
We sang our songs,
And made our toasts

With golden glasses
Lifted high
For these, our most
Beloved ghosts –

The taking in
That locks me out,
The taking on
That bids me leave

When only silence
Holds the truth
Of what it is to live
And grieve —

But summer
With its teeming voice
Of frog, fly, and
Cicada choir

Reminds me now:
I have a choice —
Between the dark
Or something

Higher

      With its teeming voice

      Between the dark
      Or something
