In Half Dark

In Half Dark

This morning, in half
dark, I reached

for a piece of light
on the floor,

thinking it to be paper—
my tidy self

always putting the world
away. But

what I found and felt
was nothing,

a not there that is
and will be,

starlight that left
the sun

and finally worked
its way into

my home and empty
hand.
