Brighter Nights

by Matthew Zangen

If someone has your kinder words,
let them hear you clearer,
and listen, too, if your voice is familiar,

allow them a distance to watch you
with more honest eyes, naked and living,
adoring liquid hellos washed in morning.

Lead them with a patient hand,
holding moments loose like a moth;
move for them from light that sticks and burns

into a paler waning rest
borne only by air, led by moonlight,
where brighter sights are needed less.
