The Little Sixty Watt Light

I told the old man
I didn't understand
his porch light
being on all day

A little sixty watt light
isn't that bright
to the light of the day

And at best
even at night
it has just enough light
to be seen a block away

So he turned out the light
and its dark out at night
since the old man
moved away

The Hero

He floats above the mourners
amazed at the crowd
His words were never many
his voice was never loud
and the lives he touched
were by simple acts
only acts
that love
