twilight

which implies that there are two

but there was only one
and it was fading

007

heading downstairs
he paused partway

foot still poised midair

thought this might be
the most honest way
to live out one’s days

008

he picked up a book

so many words to be passed
from one hand to the other

009

some words
no matter how inappropriate
impose themselves

.

010

the visible
being only a pretext

.
