‘A day so new it has no light’

 

 

A day so new it has no light
lays a presence on the air;
the sheer vigilance of sight
cold upon the long dawn stare

is all that is a sense; the cast
upon a near-symmetric hour
impressing at a line makes fast
one day-long geometric power.

In looking at a mind unfold,
reflex to a life, new sight
upon the order of the old
creates an earth, allows the light.
