friends and lovers

“companions
of the flame”
            –H.D.
we know each other
how else can it be
the obsessive lie
repeated again
to feed the hunger
to feed my hunger
someone has to lie
say they remember
when none of us can
admit to knowing
fear is always shy
an eye’s brief flicker
a small candle flame
a light to our dark
(September 25, 2013)
