I Once Was Lost

But Now

I traipse, absorbed
in a darkness so viscous
with sorrow, blind
even to the form
of my own
hand, unable to draw
back the opaque

drapes of melancholy
until I catch
a glint of light, swiftly
chased by another:
reflections that dance
off of two crooked
teeth. Like light—

house beacons,
they pull me through
the shadows. I push
forward, moving
to a sound—
track of giggles,
punctuated

by a single word:
Mama.

I am found.
