Soft n’ Glow

off you go now, you ghosts as one

in a sobered
moment,

a pause, a nod
for thanks,

shook off some layers,
and a few gray hairs
i’d wager,

now come tag me on the toe
for the off roads mapped
thru my behaviours-

a pat on the head,
and off to bed
we go,

breathe the flame out,
soft n’ slow
..

ever bathed in the
afterglow
.
