A DAY BECOMES ALL DAYS

Our hands lock together—the key, thrown into a flowing sea.

We came, when darkness sticks—to feel the warmth of the sky &

We never left even when darkness takes a step backward—

To observe the peaceful face of the sky. A day becomes all days

When we realize the sky regains her beauty, anytime she loses a star.

Our shadows find serenity in deserting the stomach of Day—together

With them—and the moon, we watch the love story of darkness and the sky.
