(audio here)

Tell me: why does light scatter

when it hits your face,

even your shadow

makes me sigh for your shape

You are as wide as you are long, like time,

your love evades me,

like the length of the path travelled

by light shaving a second.

Is the chase of light faster in water than air?

Whatever the answer be,

I am massless,

like a particle of light

journeying through air and sea,

sailing to Dimensions Unknown.

Constant like the sun you are, and yet

you are dying,

but light itself is eternal and no one knows why,

though I suppose that takes us

beyond physics.
