Shadow and Lights

A  L  O  H  A !

After the film it was raining, 
a light steady rain. 
Ruthless neon on the 
wet streets like busted candy.

I thought the most beautiful thing
in the world must be shadow.
             Sylvia Plath

Everything has beauty, 
but not everyone sees it.

No one is useless in this world 
who lightens the burden of it 
for anyone else.
             Charles Dickens
