I start working during the day 

And when it gets dark 

You turn the light on for me 


I am sitting, in a low lit room 

A light streaming from the kitchen 

You turn the lamp on for me 


I am sitting in my apartment

You’re not here

There is no lamp

I'm a black woman, a classically trained oboist, a self-taught composer, and an introspective poet trying to comprehend my thoughts.
