Today we learned what matters
is when shadow shatters
into light, assumes the plenitude
of forms which warms us to recall
the strangenesses of being
here at all. It isn’t only that we’re
more than we had bargained for:
we’re infinitely less as well.
There is no end to nothingness
and night – no end to the eternity
of swelling brightness.darkness
must insist irascibly upon. Mind’s
among a number of conditionsof a razzle-dazzle dawn.
