No candle 
No flame 

No light of any kind 

No banging on the windowpane 
No glass between us 

No luna 
No death 

No not written by lamplight
No not written on a hot afternoon 

No it is not midnight 
No I cannot blame the full moon

in your chest & the pull
of one hand towards another
Silver Lining

Of course, & yet
bad news may
be just that
no matter the ability
to scrape the edge
of truth & fact
& find a shimmering
false promise
