Light In The Corridor
By Frank Joussen

weeks after she'd died
I sat thinking about why
she was still there

when my wife left our flat
the light in the corridor
shone on
long after
she'd gone.

maybe that's what remains,
more than hollow echoes:
that light in the corridor
and then...

the memory of light.


43-year-old German schoolteacher, teaching English and religious education. His poetry has been published in three Australian magazines, one German anthology, and two British ezines.
