I see sunlight


is leaking out from me
it’s probably
the battery.
It can’t be terminal
that’s not possible
it’s just
a loose connection.

What use be lemon juice to
the sweetness of her kiss?
(slightly Shakespeare at the end of the year)

I will sit to think and watch the old year sink into the sea of years gone by
then sing auld Lang syne one more time

before the bell strikes midnight.
