We are solid oak doors that shut
on pasts, close on our dead
mothers, sons and daughters
These doors swell, often, don't open,

At midnight we walk toward the woods,
the moss cold under our toes
only caught in the light for a moment
in a glimpse that is half full

We are dim lights on dark nights
sending out calls to the wolves
howling at the sun because
the moon, has yet to hear them.

If I should need to step back
to see how you glow in this light
I can be at one with that, simply
we'll grow like violets in the dark
