Ode to Half-Light

   In the closing   notes of elegy, I taste
the taste of dusk          and sweet
 release, oolong   lasing through
    my teeth while I lounge in the corner
away    from the candles. The pressure
on my eyes is lighter      and no one
    seems to see    me, Iā€™m lazing
in the dim-glow   and   dancing   free
    of their grasp, steeped      in the gloaming
       lit only by the signs of distant    vacancy.
