Creatures of the Night


(for Colleen)


Now you’ve become a creature of the night.

But why are you unhappy in that role?

You harbor great affection for the light—

And that is self-deception, on the whole.

The light does not illuminate the soul.

Indeed, I say it chiefly blinds the eyes.

It doesn’t lead you to a worthwhile goal.

It preaches – but it doesn’t make you wise.

Come: there are daylight drones to terrorize!

Now that you share our nature, join our cause:

We serve a movement of expanding size;

We overturn all vain diurnal laws.

Destruction casts a shadow called creation.

Embrace the pupil’s glorious dilation!
