all this singing
is one song.
The differences are just
illusion and vanity.
The sun’s light looks a little different
on this wall than it does on that wall,
and a lot different on this other one,
but it’s still one light.
We have borrowed these clothes,
these time and place personalities
from a light, and when we praise,
we’re pouring them back in.
