Folly

 

When you dance at night,

only the moon is there

But the moon

does not know joy

It is cold and distant

Just  a pale eye--watching

 

You may walk the hard road

But it cares not for

Morality

It lies, sleeping

You, only trodding roughly

On its belly

 

As you reach for the stars

they do not reach back

How can they learn of dreams

If they never sleep?

They only blink  

At your fingers stretching

 

When you curse the universe

And cry out in anguish

It cannot hear you

In all of its infinity

It does not

have ears

 

The clouds won't shed tears

And the sun does

not rise In companion

with you

For the sky

has no soul

 

It is folly to believe

That, though

You live in the universe.  

The universe lives

At all
