kept in the dark

it’s an obvious marker

when two poles are down

that a bad day for one

is one for the many

camping out on porch steps like

our spectating brings the lights on faster

having had one of those

enlightening moments

a bright idea

(or two)

shimmering in the moonlight

as if to say something meaningful

in between the long pauses

something that could remove pain

while restoring weathered weathervanes

knowing the sum total of absolutely nothing

having only stepped out

to get away from being locked in the dark
