Eternal Light

-In remembrance of Randy-

 

 

Why is all I see, nothing but a bright light?

I used to see it all, oranges, browns, blues and red.

But those have faded compared to the crisp white.

 

I feel as high as a flimsy kite.

The trolley on Saint Charles Ave. passes my bachelor pad

Why is all I see, nothing but a bright light?

 

I thought after everything it would be alright.

My seductress was an amber-yellow liquid,

But she has faded compared to the crisp white.

 

My body lies here, under the moon’s spotlight

The hardwood floor as my unyielding deathbed,,

Why is all I see, nothing but a bright light?

 

With the coming of day I am cleansed with new might,

The beignets and coffee wait for me at Café du Monde.

But they have faded compared to the crisp white.

 

If only I had the foresight,

At least there was no bloodshed from death’s head.

Now I know why I see nothing but a bright light

And all has faded compared to the crisp white.
