Illumination

I like to be awake
when one day
becomes another—
not because
I’m overcome
with motivation
to make tomorrow
better than today
but because it is a
small accomplishment
to have accumulated
something to say—
something to stay up for—
some words that need
to be typed in darkness
so that I can explain
how not everything
bathed in light
is transparent
or illuminated
or something
to believe in.
