Wondering What is Real. {Poem}


What is Real?

Is it the halo of the sun,

Seen only in the darkness of an eclipse?

Do we drink its cast off light,

But duck its center,

Never looking it in the eye.


Or do we live in a constellation?

Where the points of light outline a void,

Where an image is created with negative space,


Is it too bright to be seen?

Or is there anything to be seen at all?

Love elephant and want to go steady?
