Ali Znaidi, 10/12

A Passage to the Sun
The sun is seen but is not there—
an absent dry metaphor
sent from hell
so much of the sun is there,
but is not visible
sheaves of red adumbrating
the naked eyes
I followed that fluttering butterfly
till it sank into the zenith
there are horizons, layers of clouds, & oh, yes!
the sight of the sun
