Somewhere light plays piano in the background
of that scene, the one that so often
repeats itself. You know the one
I mean — it starts with the sun embarking
on its customary routine, dancing to a slow tune
through the sky. We feel emboldened to move
with mirrored steps at the rhythm
we choose, back and forth, as
time arcs above us in brilliant currents
of arrows sharpened by the blitzing wind
only to fall below the horizon. And still the familiar
scene continues into the dark as we
share a stage emblazoned
in the afterglow of another imperfect day
made idyllic by blissful notes we always hit as one.
