Intoxications Last Only So Long   Leave a comment


she listened for glaciers rolling over
asked who will be forgotten
who will say your name when you are gone
can you love someone three generations beyond
are we sober or intoxicated in the best of times
in the worst of times

if this night a friend could sit on her bed for a bit
they could pray to the sky
asking that it stay blue until fireflies
light summers forever and rains
make melodies outside windows
for all those wee children generations beyond
