No dawn

to have no dawn
no breaking day
no light before the eyes behind the heart
no new start

to have no dawn
no birdsong
no piercing the silent night
no definition to be given

the dark nameless shapes
no names, no signs, no sight
to have no dawn
is to hear only one endless monotone

no song, no dance
hard-pressed and famished
no beloved day, into darkness
one by one, to be driven away

(Isaiah 8 says of mediums - If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn)
