A Sprinkling Of Darkness

 

wearing my old clothes

the smell of shiver

as dusk has fallen

my quiet bedroom has slipped into grey

shadows and light on my hands

and

enter my brother

who

with a casual flick of his hand

turns on the light

i understand

that sometimes the world is better

with a

sprinkling of darkness

 

i wait paitently

as he finds what he needs

new sheets of paper to make oragami

then he

exits the scene

thoughtfully leaving the light on for me

but this is an artifical sun

and i

turn it off

 

and hold in my eyes

a cupful of white shadows

and a sprinkling of darkness.
