The pain you feel is natural.
It reminds you of the asparagus tips
from one side of your plate
to another. When you wished
You were somewhere else
Anywhere else. But really
That was the problem. Sight.
The invisibility. You
Are never alone but
A room of lamps and chats
Reminds you of the rotating
Planets, electrons adding
And subtracting all on their own.
There are distant stars falling,
According to your eyes. The pain is in
Your heart, you can feel it
The same way you can feel
That star after your eyes have convinced your body
That magic exists and it was burning
In the sky. In the night
That pain comes and tells you
About itself. You are ready, prepared.
It will be your shadow and your guide.
