Francoise by Doug Johnson



Let her in slowly,

Light a series of

Candles to help her

See, keep one inside

The door, one just

Outside, white wax,

Flame of yellow-

Beacons aglow

Spread a few more

Across the room in

Two circles touching

Each other lightly-

The way she used

To kiss you at night

Before she slipped

Out the door silently
