forbidden knowledge

Just what am I supposed to know?
what limit was charted before we were born –
what is in the darkness, there,
too far from the sun to see,
is it truth? is it
as false as every past truth?
is it merely more shadow
blended but distinct
in the unknown cosmos?
and how am I to know it is forbidden –
until the sweet juice drizzles down my fingers
and it is known.
