Starry Self

These are the darkest places we know:

shadows that hid the ancestors

as they followed the stars

night that frees

our sun-bound eyes

to see in the beginning of time

the infinity of all conception

your own conception

in the velvet 

Of your mother's womb

Who teaches us to fear the dark?


The night is innocent

the starry dark welcomes you
