The Stunning Light

Every last bulb is broken.

The crane in the corner
nesting on slivers of glass.

A man with a stick wakes up.
He begins to beat a tune.

Then all of a sudden
this new light comes on.

We dance
in a light so hungry
it eats our eyes.

The crane flies out the window.

We do not know
how long this light
will last.
