The gracious crucible of light
that spawned my shambling steps,
dangling that golden carrot
through a narrative

running and crawling

The view up there, it must be good,
a riot of jocularity.
But I don’t share that shade of blue,
while navigating

the midnight of my storied tome,
relating a narrative so familiar
until You decide to call me
