but wanting it was a reason to join our worlds
--so we opened a view into the swirling night
that was different for the candlelight casting
a flickering amber radiance against the window frame
while dim saffron tore shreds through the raging clouds
and we sat in the window of the slate twilight
and knew this moment fully as it passed--this we gave each other--
