Light and Life

Eventually is no significance.
The universe expands to a standstill
or collapses to a point, and whether
we curse the darkness or light a candle
does not amend the outcome.
We exist to become more perfectly . . . alone.
Still, a man who squeezes light from his own skin
reminds his neighbors that a man may choose
extinction in the manner of a star.

--James Sutton
