A yellow porch light

Dotted with

The past lives of


Casts a weak

Weathered haze

Onto a green

Screen door

Where voices

Whisper out

Into the openness

Of cool air.


Inside lights

Speak shadows onto


As plates retired

From dinner

Swim with silverware

In the sink.


A rocking chair

Meters out

The end of day

As fireflies

Blink in silence
