MR. OPTIMISM WINTER

If you must be lonely
    
     do it by yourself.


There is a joke in there

     but I'll have to be diligent,

work hard to get the laugh

     to outweigh the hurt.

 
The night is as dark as sisters

     and I can't fly. A whole

universe and one miner's light.

     
     I'm not waiting forever,

and I still think anything is possible.
