I sometimes
Watch the light fade
From streetlights
That woke just
8 hours ago
And I wonder
If we built machines
Because we
Needed to know
We could make something
And something
That could be fixed
And something that
Never need die
So we could lift
The light in life
And never let
Darkness override
Our sense of
I think it backfired
When we added an
On switch
We never let ourselves
Or our machines rest
And we stumble
I think
Through the universe
Without remembering
That those things
Without beginning
Or end, are
By definition,

And exist
In no
Place we
Can touch

We dropped out
Of feeling
When we dropped
Out of feeling scared
Because the only cure

Maybe –

Is love.

Timeless, indefinable,
