The Night is for many things but …

I would rather walk

my authentic steps into the night,

embracing obscurity,

than remain pliant fodder

for certainly lovely honey-traps

laid aforehand, by well-meaning pity.


The night and me

we are one abiding,

our abode,

beyond the reach you seek,

with your contrivances,

of lightmaking.


If you wait

until my return

then we may talk,

as equals.

You bring the true light

and intent

and I,

bring my friends,

of the dark.


we will sit,

in the balance,

of mutual possibility.
