lantern festival

                                               We 
                                      bent      wire, 
                              looping           and tying.
                          Lantern                     skeletons 
                         sprouted                        like line 
                           drawings                         and then 
                              bold paper                shades of
                                floating                persimmons. 
                                 The river     gleamed reptilian 
                                    in darkness spotted with 
                                      tea lights. I couldn't 
                                           see your eyes
                                               just sails of light
                                  bobbing and hueing
                                         and the small gods
                                   their shimmering reflections
