i wish

to consciously go into that good night
conscious of my loves
their humor, good will, equality and support
but i will not -- will it so
the city lights outside my window on this hill
have been candles
more than eleven years writing

a poet friend tells a story from olden days
people use to put a candle in their window
when they wanted company
any company would do
to imagine to live like that
(we did and could again)
