The Monument

Poem By Elizabeth Bishop

Within uniting in darkness we do.
In restful sleep that captures dreams.
Implants of an awakened 'world'.
To manifest a consciousness...
With choices made that come true,
It seems.

Within uniting in darkness we do.
Traveling unrestricted,
As limitations known are lifted.
And this 'energized' ray...
We see at night and call a star,
Merges all souls together in slumber...
Inside this cosmic feasting 'bazaar'.
Captured until our needs disappear.
Aliens too of this universe we are!
Illegal we are not!
In this vast blackness...
Where we are dropped.
On a tiny speck of dust.
Spinning without a stop!

Within uniting in darkness we do.
In restful sleep that captures dreams.
Implants of an awakened 'world'.
To manifest a consciousness...
With choices made that come true,
It seems.
Living to survive,
As dustmites on a piece
Of twirling fragile string!
