“Well-Wishing the Midnight”

Stepping into the night as the shadows come to play.

See them standing on the corners of the low lanterns,

dancing to the strings of the orchestral theatrics.

Walk to the left and right back and forth in secret,

invisible steps guided by no one in particular.

Run to the fountain of dreams that lights the path,

surrender all coin and courage to the murky water,

well-wishing the midnight into the morning away.
