Day and Night

Standard

Bright shield, blue sky
conceals the broad universe
with brilliant ruse of
solitude.

Jealous sun
brooking no lesser lights,
tells us
that we’re all alone.

Up to the sun
you may cast your gaze,
but hide your eyes
with fingers splayed
or dazzling day
to inner darkness will fade.

But as the tyrant sun declines
look up again, and you will find
how luminescent night
strips away blue day’s
bright lie of “same”

and dagger stars
pierce
the milky silk
of outer-space.
