His Family Lights 293 Luminarias Every Night Until Christmas – Tim Staley

His Family Lights

293 Luminarias Every Night

Until Christmas

for Tim Chavez 1956–2020

293 luminarias

line both sides

of the street.

Parallel stalks

of star grass glow

in the smoky haze.

293 luminarias

tealight the runway

for a ghost.

A splatter

of soft syllables

upon the walls.

Each one a wobble

of whatever grace

their wick contains.
