Darkness

Consume your truths through revelations’ end-
less dreams of nights’ unquenched celestial rites
wherein ancestral temples rise descend
your captive tribal scriptures ‘neath your light

subdued by distance still unseeing you
hold keys of answer questions yet unformed
within perceptions’ covert pasts renew
the covenant of bloods’ before dawns’ born

of unforeseen eclipsed rays of the day
when unrevealed your word is spoken fast
against stone walls to echo while you say
your premonitions’ futures of the last

untaken breaths from far beneath the soul
divergent from attempts to make selves whole

(Avi Sato, 2019)
