Hope

on one word hung a nation

in one breath a dream called

within one thought balanced need with necessity

and want with wanting more 

above the world the stars gathered wishes

saving for when the lights all go out

I put up a candle in the cupboard 

a prayer on my lips

and a lighter in my pocket above my heart
