marking against the dark – January 5


friends come over

and stay

the talk goes on

and on

and on

and on


amidst quiet gaps

we stare into the

Christmas tree

lights like

flame flickering

in the campfire


where stories are

told and we sit

in tribal memory



silence as part

of the together

the on and

on of our voices


against the dark.
