Festival of Lights

The Flaneur's heart heads upward like a loose ember from a holiday bonfire.

at new year midnight
     silent bike glides below
screen-lit handlebars

street in early dark
     little girl walks home with dad
light show on her shoes

stars slip past soundless
     for the most part unobserved
night has no mirror
