the heart burglars

The moon is full tonight,
and it is raining;
tough choices for
the heart burglars:
risk getting caught
and getting wet?
or just stay in
and wait for the
soul's darkness
and the arid conditions
that it engenders,
to give opportunity
a free rein?

Me, I am staying in tonight:
they find me anyway,
dark or light,
rainy or bright.
