A Phoenix of Every Household

After the self-infliction
Among the shadows
Of light and darkness
Unpromising and unkind
Whenever your eyes
All conscious to see
your hearing
Free to listen
And burdened body
All ready to rest
The wounded soul
Seeks remedy

At the sunset
The last light
Gentle and glowing
The last breaths
Of dying day
Hasten to home
Get inside
She waits for hours
To close the door
On the heat and horrors
Of the furious world
Which is going to chase you
Tomorrow again
