For Granted

I stand

In the dark

Beside the busy

Placed and still

Illuminating

Only the earth

In front of me

Unless dust fog

Rain travelers

Pass close enough

Used

Until daylight

Or

With a pop and fizzle

I burn out

No notice paid

For

A few hours

Or much much longer

  2. Unless, Romantic Dominant, the lamp is a person. Then what is it?
