Light space

Between sober & drunk

enough to let thoughts flow

away from their usual track

holding enough to speak them clear

maybe break through the gap

between who we are

want to think we be

I was giving my thoughts

to the assembled company

they were listening deep

reflecting back on ideas

straight

& the wine flowed

the beer got low

as night drew on

we moved on to other things

slept tight in our dreams again

we spoke kindly of that night

the things we thought we’d said

everything was muddy now

the stream ceased to be clear

though we knew we had

to do it all over again
