TRIP THE LIGHT FANTASTIC
The wind brings life on this warm summer night,
pushing back further the return of the light.
We could trip and dance in nearly sixty six ways,
light and nimble in this space between two days.
But nights even like this must come to an end
so it’s in this moment I’ll choose to suspend:
the weightlessness of our final hours,
as we glide above these secret flowers.
We’ll find comfort in nighttime’s warm embrace
and have this be our go-to-place.
When things are looking dauntingly dark
here is the light we stole from midnight park.
