why fight about

the right amount of light?

come to bed already,

winter’s sky moves

grey and steady,

grown children,

staining satin sheets,

mixing peanut butter with jelly,


fewer words

to be spoken,

for in this

self-same moment,

no one could

venture to know

the difference of glow

between the moon and the sun.
