Star Child

You might think that a child of the night

would bring darkness

to the world around it.

But that created in darkness

can fill a need.


For what is the most noticeable thing in the night sky?

The stars.

Why are cities beautiful at night?

Lights: neon, flourescent,

all over.

like so, products of dark times

do not need to be an extension of that darkness,

but can function as light

for others.
