The Sound of Something Heavy
2002 Jennifer Lyon

On this night
Beneath the dark street light
That flickers
On and off
You'll find me
In my room
All alone
Contemplating
Life
And death
And the cool
Night air
For I am unable
To bear
The things that loom
And the creeping doom
So my sanity
Wavers
Like Darkness
In the light
Like the lone
Lamplight.
