That Old Keen Darkness

Rooster consciousness,
the rooster that sees light in darkness
rooster announces the light while submerged in darkness
from the deepest place as it’s starting to turn

soon we’ll be in light, you can feel it
it teases, it plays in spring dazzle
that exhilaration, that rush forward
to leave everything behind

We have been staring into darkness
We have been shown darkness

Gingerly, carry that darkness

stirring to its strange voice
its story

carry it in your pocket
rub it like a stone
take side glances at its face

all our transformations
in that stony face
looking towards the light
