you and me

this light
that is not mine
and is not yours
yet
it illuminates you and me into being

in this light, you and i subsist
in this light, you and i will cease to be

when we love
this light is a blazing fire

when we hate
we dampen it
out of our narrow lives

in this light we are
in this light, death is

death
that singular fact of our lives

in this light
we are always being born
we are always dying
now
again
and again

we are fuel
to its fire
we are witness
to its blaze

this light
and you
and me
