A definition of hope

Just light a candle and watch it
flicker in silence
Rest an elbow on long proven
And stroll resignedly along 
the same width of spiteful 
zero sums
A step away enthralls a din
Just roil its sensitivity until
it sheds itself
Align your boundaries,
to strip them bare
And turn that din into a funnel-shaped
and infinite sigh
