Daring unbelief
i took a knife to the clouds
and slice after slice, I separated out
the sun from the sky,
            leaving empty black space
            and all the stars dotting the landscape.

then I too my pen,
            and wrote in living colors on dark canvas, my self defense
                        the questions flashed against
                        and gave new radiance
                                                to my eyes
            “i once was blind, but now
            i unbelieve”, every new blink said to me
                                    what i earlier confessed,
                                    that behind the clouds and the sun
                                                there is nothing left.
