the benevolence of night

they often speak
of things otherwise
unknown – were it
not for they

they say that my
body heals itself
during the night

cells rebuild
and muscles are
sewn again with stronger
bonds than bones
or sinews.

in my dreams the brain
energizes lost
caverns deep within

where i create faces i’ve never seen
and places that don’t exist
me, a god, building
trees and mountains and the
darkest places

ah the whole of this world
finds solace when
the mighty mighty
sun is hidden

millions and millions of miles away
