i have fallen

in love

with a man

with a box.

(a blue box.

the bluest of blues.

with the lightest of lights.

and the loudest of sounds.

and the longest of times.)

and a screwdriver


of course

(with sounds

of all sorts.)

the box

has taken me everywhere

the screwdriver

has told me everything

the man

has opened my eyes

to a time before times

(and what will become

of time altogether.

that space never ends

but the ending is near.

and made all my dreams


and he is fantastic.

but he is just a man

with a box

of the bluest of blues.

(and the end of all time.).
