Mothsong by Colette Inez
this is not the sun,
I say flailing my arm, but you believe
lightís true source rules from the throne
of my 60 watt bulb.
I wave off the notion
that one day a hand will bang me to the floor,
and Iíll swear by my truth, one I conceive,
that or a lie I elect wholly to believe.
