ECLIPSE

Like a ray of light
to an endless night,
Each step: a pace of certainty
Toward the time that never comes;
To which I say,
this day used to be.

At the end of illumination,
The unknown hovers.
It always does,
Like it always did
in someone else’s time.

A cliff catches a foot
on some fragile days
When the light breaks,
and when there’s hardly a spark
to ignite a wick.
