The last pages of a blank book
no longer blank now but
brimming with scratched
out dreams in lead and ink
a project of projected words
a full carafe of craft
most of it cast out
like bread upon the water
or a lantern carried by
the heat of the small flame
inside up through the wind
and into other lives
