Night

Oh night I have never known you

Black wings Whisper secrets Enclose me In the ease Of your emptiness

The mind holds fast But soon dissolves Spilling from its jar Everywhere

Forbidden Denied Turned loose From myself Into you

We rise Above countless suns Swoop below Imagination Subsume infinity

Radical, fleeting sites Symbols vanish For ever’s sake

Oh night I have never known you Dawn waltzes in Pushes you aside Takes credit Assumes

But it’s too late I'm smitten by you The feeling Beyond safe

Oh night Sweet humility Awesome omniscience

Now that I know you I can only entertain The day’s illusions
