The Lovers


Listen, so our lamp
goes out – it just means
there was someone needed light
more than us; it just means
we had enough.

that light went to someone
underground, who now sees
the cave of wonders she
was stumbling through before;
or else a midnight thief

is about to be discovered;
or maybe the place where
it’s noon right now just got
a little bit brighter.

Anyway, you and I,
we both know there’s really
no such thing as the dark.
