 I am all receptor.

and I’m done with receiving.

 

In the tunnels and caves

I fought your loneliness

I fought your grief

 

I had eyes once

but they’re gone now

 

I dipped my words

in the drip of your body.

I dipped them in the moonlight

I could not see.

 

I am all survival.

My ciliary tufts.

My flame cells.

 

The whispered stars

come out as usual

 

and offer nothing

but more light.
