Poems by Dan Hoy

 

 

from The Luciferians

 

 

Think
of what the sky

is

without a giant
falling

god in flames.

 

 

 

 

 

All information
in the form

of this planet
is action

in the light of the Sun.

 

 

 

 

 

The day
is a measure

of what it
takes the Sun

to forget us.

 

 

 

 

 

Every night

every thought
we think

is backlit

by that
panopticon

in the sky

& its mirrors
here on Earth.

 

 

 

 

 

The city
lights

obscure

the stars &
all messages

they hold
until

the Sun

splits open
the day &

annihilates
all other light.

 

 

 

 

 

Here
comes the Sun

all over Earth.

 

 

 

 

 

Imagine
the seed

this planet was

in your hand.

 

 

 

 

 

All the code
sprouting

new leaves &
strategies

beneath our feet.

 

 

 

 

 

Civilization
is just

bad strategy.

 

 

 

 

 

Humanity
is disrespect for human
life

in broad daylight.
