Not All the Lights Are Out -- by Josh

Your borrowed light greets me
Through tattered shreds of banana leaves,
dancing in the breeze
These rays, which just hours before
Sent us skittering across the street during our walk to taekwondo
Much like our neighbors,
whom we greeted as they settled their plastic chairs into the shade,
opposite their homes, desperate for respite
And here it is, as we bathe in your cool glow on the now glorious rooftop,
Max wondering aloud about the mysteries that lie within and beyond you
Your silver gift shimmering on the coco fronds
Illuminating the Spiderman undies hanging on the line
Creating a sweet moment for father and son
