    And I am offended to think of
    the light they once had.

    Emptied Candles

    The days of the future are standing before me
    like a row of ablaze candles;
    golden hot living candles
    The past days remain behind me, a despairing
    line of emptied candles
    the closest ones still beam smoke
    Cold candles, melted down, bent
    I don't want to look at them ;
    the sight of them throbbing me,
