Does Time Count On You?

The sun constantly rises

as it always sets

in a sky as wide as

the side of this ocean you’re standing at

and if you could fly as fast as the sun

you would never see the stars

just one big mean old celestial body

cause the sun is the single star that burns you

no constellation

not even the arrow of Apollo

can scorch you

night cloaks you

makes you stronger than the cyclopes

to the attack

of these heavenly bodies

the violence of their supernovas

dulled by darkness

the light of

God.
