Facing Reality Through Fiction


on 06/29/2011

Candles on the mantle

Of bayberry and spice

And two escalabras hold

Cinnamon tealights


Five more candles in the bedroom

Of a greenish-yellow hue

An oillamp in the bathroom

With shells of pink and blue


There are boxes in the dresser

And more boxes in hutch

Of tealights and votives

And tapers and such


But when the power fails

I discover there’s a catch

As I stumble in the darkness

My kingdom for a match
