every time you glance at me
i crack
what i was sure of
gives way
to what i never knew

i crack
and i hold together my cracks
hoping they would mend

but every glance
is a piercing light
that opens up my darkness
that inaugurates
a fullness of being

every glance destroys
every glance brings alive
this stunning play of the universe

as stars explode before they die
and new ones form from their ruins
i too explode
and am re-born

my ashes scatter in the world
waiting to catch fire again
from new flames
in new worlds
