when I see
the faint ring of scar
beneath her pearls
the champagne toast
loses its sparkle

  head down
you hurry past my storm -
blistered dwelling
I fling open the shutters
but still you ignore me

    a nondrinker
I don’t know the joy
of Li Bai who drowned
his worries in wine…
I sip my second coffee

dismissing my fears
I step into the darkness
there are shadows
in the sunshine too

  early spring morning
kind light through the blinds...
it dawns on me
how dark my life would be
without you
