Visionary company, who I come to see, who I have seen. I keep visions close, have company with them. I close my eyes. I see all that I see behind my lids like a movie on a screen, I lay me down to sleep, a screen for other shadow plays, I am the star mute prophet in me.
Where is this wisdom I’ve been waiting for? I’ve led myself to believe I would not mock the man who made it out of Plato’s cave to see the world by the light of day. I have led myself to believe I would not prefer the shadows to the sight of things in the light.
I have lead myself to water many times in my life.
