3:54 p.m., December 6, 2009, Manhattan

Here it is again,
slinking toward
the solstice:
that unearthly light –

angled as if
hungry for a fight
with something larger,
fiercer, more remote,

more full of mystery
than you or I
could ever be.
You cannot look

too long at it –
not that it will even
slightly mind you.
But it will blind you.
