light shakes the ankles, darkness readies the knees,

darkness is a box of pins, light the ghosts of future stars,

light sounds out words, creates space, darkness kneads the wrists,

darkness is the immanence of distance and the ongoing retrieval of it,

darkness stitches bones into the soul, light is the darkness when you blink
