National Poetry Month: Issue 18

In a rush, a poem from Richard Brautigan from, The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster.

A Good-Talking Candle                    by Richard Brautigan

I had a good-talking candle
last night in my bedroom.

I was very tired but I wanted
somebody to be with me,
   so I lit a candle.

and listened to its comfortable
voice of light until I was asleep.

Blogging off...
