    Poem: Red Candle

     

    One pink and red candle-

    wax dripping hot.

    I burned my knuckle and sucked the sore.

    It wept.

     

    Anyway,

    I met a boy last night

    and everything made sense.

     

    I wrapped him in my blanket

    and looked into his eyes.

    I swore after the first,

    and I didn’t;

    I never did,

     

    Until now.

     

    He smiles at me

    and all is forgotten.

    Body and blood.

     

    Strange Eucharist.

     

    He believed me-

    wrapped in my blanket

    and dancing with the chill.

    Everything became so clear;

     

    It is you!

    A Puck-

    A Lazarus.

    A prince?

     

    I laugh and applaud from the back of the theater.

    The red candle burns.

    The wax drips.

     

    And I cry.

    Not from sorrow nor pain,

    But because the world has finally un-fogged

    itself.

     

    And I can see again.

     

    I’m trying.

    I am trying,

    Darling.
