Here in elongating shadows
Hand still open--only hanging
From a wrist gone limp like every
Slack from lack of once effusive
Enveloping heat, infusing greetings
With depth of effulgent feeling
Seemed to mean it, guess I didn't
Know any better yet--too thrilled
Thrumming with it to pick up
On the creeping detachment seeping
Apathy making each "how are you"
Come out as a yawn for me to catch
Still caught off guard, guess I got carried
Away again but have gone nowhere
There is nothing more I could want
From you: no sun, not in your sky
Try to hold a candle, carry your own
Torch and claim it isn't coal
Tar pitch night
Inspired by Jann Arden's song Insensitive
