The Darkness of Light (A Poem)

The Darkness of Light
In the world of needing
known with certainty
there lives this question
– born of darkness, killed by light –
of weak force
with undertones of doubt
that creates the abyss
into which I may fall
hooked by an answer yet to come
for need of a space
in which the echo might produce
its multitudinous chorus
of possible
– now in unison, now in discord –
offering up a song
simple harmony cannot fathom
the darkness of light,
and only a dim spirit would exorcise
one that the other might be free.
A question of place and need
I try to get there.
