wish I could lighten up

drink a glass of wine

forget my cares joined in

the roaring crowds of football fans

hogging every tavern

in this perfect Autumn afternoon

but then no thanks

I have my own rituals

and I remember why such heaviness

makes for such sparkling fun

when the weight is lifted (or even of itself)

and the mix of dark and light intensifies everything

wish I could hold up better and take more since

the harder the suffering the lighter and happier the joy afterward...
