A torch

a magnificent torch illuminating our path

attached to the wall

by some 15th century explorer

held more life than i could ever imagine

hundreds of years of passing conversation

muffled laughs, jeering stares

hanging by the grace of an unforgiving stone

eternal wallflower

understanding this day

better than any light switch, dimwit, or plunger ever could

i admire you

for all you see and all you let go by
