Day and Night


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

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 will
to inner darkness 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
the milky silk
of outer-space.
