Age over Dream

Dream over memory ―
this incessant grind of hours
only the ancient survive
                         in cold stone i'm-age-
                         less fervent flesh and bone
remain true in spite
the verbal contortion of thoughts
wholesome desire
  promises century-old 
that do not live long enough
to limn the light at dawn
                         re-call your name.

"We eat light, drink it in through our skins. With a little more exposure to light, 
you feel part of things physically. I like feeling the power of light and space physically 
because then you can order it materially. Seeing is a very sensuous act ―
there's a sweet deliciousness to feeling yourself see something."

― James Turrell
