Darkness discloses – what?
Reams and reams
of nothing,
which cannot be quantified.

The void, though –
not staring
exactly, squints into the broken motif of the kaleidoscope,
dissolving the meaning of

what is – impenetrable –

that Archimedean fixation we erase
to escape,
Gadamer’s tenebrous fusion of horizons

evoking
that which we fear is unknowable:
the blank emptiness,

an unspoken soliloquy
of doubt –
