Imagine the Light (Poem)

Imagine the Light

We find a place for what we lose.
     ~ Sigmund Freud

We find a place
for what we lose

this innocence
that bears

the full body burden.

This Advent,
we wait for the dark

to lift, cup palms
for bread to feed

what moves within.

How they must
imagine the light now!

I have no words, beyond what I say in this poem, for what happened in Connecticut today.
