Black Sun

To awaken is to return to being
to be re-lit in a dark cubicle;
the first steps that I take
in this re-being are tentative.

To again be in such darkness
is a sailing without compass.
I have my compass by my side,
the dark expanse of a black sun

which is your hair,
inverse lighthouse, lightless,
that gives me direction
with the gypsy light it beams.
