Tenebrous Friend

Tenebrous Friend



We revel in the light

Hang stings of sparkling bulbs

to help us forget that darkness

exists, to erase our fears of unknown

matter. We turn our backs on

the night and worship the sun

How quickly we forget that nightfall

is the one friend that will keep our secrets



Night Search

Quadrille #6 – Victoria has asked us to shimmer


in the darkest
night when
light is hidden
by heavy clouds
when mister moon
is absent and fancy
stars don’t shimmer
I reach out – stumble
fumble – searching for
an anchor in this sea
of blackness and
unknown monsters
and I find you
