Poem: Small Extravagances

September 20, 2010

Letting a candle burn for no other reason

than the fact that I enjoy letting it burn

catching from the corner of my eye

as I read

that shivering light growing shorter

as the page turns after page, the waste

a comfort somehow

a small extravagance.
