The Light On

 

Because anger lets you will its volume

Encourages itself upon you

It is easiest to rage

Make the morning a landscape of stone

 

It takes informed surrender to kill the light

He left on through the night

And sit in the unhurried darkness

Of the sun on its way up

 

Although, in retrospect, all decisions

Are informed
