and so we burn the earth

No compass is as honest as the night

to lead you from star to star from

moon to tide to ocean from the

heart of the West to the gems of the East, but

this world has been so clouded by sunshine

from eons of a masochistic worship of light 

that we've developed a fear of the dark so powerful

we can not stand to see the constellations as they shroud the sky in their dim blaze.


And So We Burn The Earth


in an attempt to counteract the beautiful effects of its black might-

and we wait

every night

in shadow

for the sun to rise.
