Let's Turn Off the Porch Light

Dappled brown moths
wooly as Grammy's needlepoint
whirl around the porch light,
winged pilgrims desperate
for union with the Holy.

Little suns everywhere
lure us to the surface of things
where we burn for lack of shadows,
mistaking the blaze of want
for a larger love.
