The First Light*

At first light we begin anew,

 

Only to repeat the deeds of yesterday.

 

Caged in as animals are at a zoo

 

Awaiting validation from strangers,

 

Without a care in the world

 

of the smoke rising behind us.

 

At every light, we wilt a little more

 

With every beat of the drum.

 

Fading away, an hour, a day and evermore.
