Stevieslaw: DNA—new poem

My poem DNA was published today on the Linden Avenue Literary Journal.  Here is the poem—followed by the link.

DNA

 

Writing,

in the dim

and narrow light

of the old lamp

that graces

my basement desk,

I realize

once again

how I’ve come

to resemble you.

 

In a room made

mysterious by shadow,

I remember how

you would often

prepare dinner

in the uncertain light

of late afternoon,

delaying as long as you

might the incandescence

that left you oddly anxious.

 

I turn off the lamp

and make my way

across the dusky room,

chuckling at the skill

you passed to me,

of finding my way

in the dark.
