Bright Light

Human beings kill darkness.

Deep, full darkness is disappearing everywhere.

Lights kill the stars.

Lights kill moonlight.

Lights kill light and shadow.

Lights kill peace.

Lights kill rest.

Lights kill sleep.

Ugly, eye-gouging artificial light

Destroys magical dusk, gloaming, twilight, evening and night.

We roll aimlessly up and down strips of mind-blinding light, blasting away at living shadow.

A crazed population calls for more and more lighted boxes, glaring images.

Nuance, tenebrism, chiaroscuro have passed beyond the scope of our poor senses, beyond comprehension.

Our distorted sight is a poor mechanism, disconnected from experience.

Very soon we will see everything and be totally blind.
