Advent Wicks

the way it goes

this faithful wick

will waste a braid

to lend some light

 

a last black gasp

remembering

just enough bright

to show what might

 

amount to some

thing more than word

or flesh alone,

a sacrifice;

 

promises don't

arrive on time

they wait for when

we wait for them

 

like this, with wicks.
