I live in the dark
I said.
Then I opened my eyes to the dark,
The shadows of variation,
The all-around-ness to me.
A black I could come to depend on.
And I found myself in the dark.

I live under ice
I said.
Then I lifted my eyes to the ice
The crystals and gleaming striations,
The over-ness always to me.
A cold I could always be sure of.
And I saw myself in the ice.

I live within chaos
I said.
Then my eyelids floated away.
My body dissolved and my knowledge.
And I only dreamt about love.

 Did you show your children the stars?,
Accuser said.
Not enough! Not enough!
Let me show them galaxies
only so that they may recognize infinity
when they see my love.
