candles and fireflies – from the perspective of the town drunk

candles and fireflies
imitate each other
confusing distant
watchers, which is
the safe one to
capture, seen out
of the corner of
your eye, candles
do not move but
to flicker, obviously
the fireflies are the
safer ones to capture,
if you can get past
their razorblade teeth
