The news this week has been disheartening but not surprising. I generally avoid the news but sometimes it's unavoidable. Then I lay awake at night thinking about it, which is why I avoid it in the first place.

aperture

when I lose focus

I picture a candleflame

burning in darkness

I know how light works

wherever my mind was made

there burned a candle

into the darkness

the light traveled forever

from the beginning

it seems dark out there

but if light is anywhere

light is everywhere
