From the author: Many of us went to some dark places in the past year. For all of you who've ever been there, you're not alone. If you have suicidal thoughts or other mental health crisis, in the USA call 1-800-273-TALK.


Lantern sputters

in a hollow hole

 

Eggless shells

groan and crack

 

The hungry fox

climbs the stair

 

Eyes shining

in the failing light
