Birthday candles are untapped wishes

Based on a true story?

t r e f o l o g y

I remember when

all the lights went out,

due to an unpaid electricity bill.

All my sister & I

could find in the house

were birthday candles.

But each time my mom would light one, 

one of us would make a wish

& blow it out. 


II.

Mom got angry & told us to sing a song instead,

so we sang happy birthday to the dark
