blithe but true

20130722_213250

 

AH, MY FANS, AND, OH, MY FRIENDS
How much more black and blue
it may leave me and you when

— it’s blithe but true —

our pain was worth it to those who sit:

sit enwrapt in their own in-drawn and
in-held breaths, in-grown on
their sofas — and who

sit in judgement on the entertainment value
of our lives –
that “lovely light” our lives gave off

as our home burned down at both ends.
