And now, our first and second Selections -
Electric light surpassing the moon: my confusion;
Moonlight kissing the dark water: your brief touch.
-- Dan D'Agostino
Optical physics posits
that there is no absolute black
nor is there absolute white
as one requires the absolute absence of light
and the other requires that light prevail over all other energy
in an exactly balanced spectrum
to an infinite degree;
one requires manic laughter and the other sadness without cease.
Astral physics confirms this thinking.
Travel deep enough into the most profound Black Hole
and you come out on the other side
to another explosion of light
into nova and then again; in infinite flux.
The only absolutes in the existence of life energy are impermanence and change.
You can’t laugh beyond entropy
and you can’t stay sad forever but you can shade your shit;
be cool and shade your shit.
You can wear dark sunglasses in the darkest darkness; just don’t close your eyes.
-- Richard Velez
