Poetry Friday: Accounts by Rae Armantrou

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Clearest Blue by Chvrches

Light was on its way
from nothing
to nowhere.

Light was all business

          Light was full speed

when it got interrupted.

Interrupted by what?

When it got tangled up
and broke
into opposite

          broke into brand new things.

          What kinds of things?

- excerpt from Accounts by Rae Armantrout

Methinks that light got interrupted by A. the spin of the earth around the sun to that place where it's dark most all the time, compounded by B. Daylight Savings!
