Adam D. Weeks
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, I’m lazing
in the dim-glow and dancing free
of their grasp, steeped in the gloaming
lit only by the signs of distant vacancy.
