  NIGHT IS
DARKNESS OF IGNORANCE
WHICH THE CYNICAL REASON
WIPES
ON THE SHORES OF MIND

TO SHOW
SUDDEN BLAZING FLASHES
OF EPHEMERAL
ENLIGHTENMENT

TO PLUNGE
AGAIN DEEPER
THE TREMULOUS SPIRIT
INTO DARKER RECESSES
WHICH ONLY THE TRANSIENT FIRE REVEALS

AND THUS TO MAKE EVERY
INTERMITTENT PHASE OF IGNORANCE
MORE UNFULFILLED THAN THE ONE BEFORE
EVERY DURATION OF SORROWFUL
HAPLESSLY INTERIM
AWAKENING
