One poem by Jason Galloway

Sitting at a Table at Sunset

The last effort of light outside the glass—
empty glass, blank pages 
                                         in the darkening room
                                         in the company of empty chairs

& this dark gold candlestick tarnish
this thumbprint & these ovals of beeswax gold

teardrop pendants, the tip of this pen
                                                           not yet lit
