Too Much Light

brown chairs inside a room

Too much light in the eyes
too much shine on the fields
see it all shrivel beneath us
until we can see no more, no more,
nothing left to grasp,
no miracles to behold
only light in the eyes,
light in the mouth –
burning down the throat
through the shade of organs
sparking out these pale-pink gears
leaving shadows on the walls,
lovers on couches, children playing,
only shadows on the walls.
