A riot of words — But
In this world, a dearth of time
None to be squandered
— How many lighted matches for one year?
— Or ten?
The quality of incandescence –
— How many steps to Jupiter? Take enough light for the walk! At least one hundred matchbooks full!
Sadly.. no dearth of fire and darkness
— And no shortage of wind to quell the light. We relight and relight.. Wind blows
— Sand in our eyes and our mouths. Riot of words chokes us.
Sit in a tree.. let the winds rock us to sleep. — How many hours in a nap? How many naps?
The quality of the darkness, and the value of stars.
We sleep better in the dark, and we need the rest to resist — fight for the light.
