the poetry of s.c. harz / “Flicker and fade”

Light at the end of the tunnel

You are beginning to flicker and fade

so I am buckling up boots and coat

against the sudden October frost

and making the hardware store hike

so I can replace the fuse

that is responsible for the

light at the end of your tunnel.
