an enkindle

the headlights of a car approaching  from the opposite direction
or a paid electric bill.

it is the silence on the other side of the phone line
or another bottle of cheap beer that you drink.

it is the nuclear explosion on TV
or the dead fly that float in your cup of morning coffee.

it is the splinter in your palm
or the moment in the past where you were caught in bed with your neighbor’s daughter.

it is the pain of birth,
or last grasp of the air.
