I will find myself dancing naked
and unashamed amidst the uneasy stares
of equally naked trees.
Because light has no meaning
without its own absence;
Because shells roar
with Poseidon’s voice
no matter how far from the sea
they find themselves;
because the universe is alive, and I
am the glory of dead suns;
because the average human life span
is two and a half billion heartbeats,
but I will live forever.
