Forever Taking Leave

Lose something every day,
before one of us has accidental babies.
—Happiness never,
like a rootless tree.
Out, out, brief candle!
Put out the light, and then—
fly to others we know not of.

Flights of angels sing to thee
as one who lies down to pleasant dreams.
So it goes.
We’ll know better next time.
