Song of Darkness

 

David McCooey

 

 

None of it is true: I am

neither malevolent nor

 

mystical. You have nothing

to fear; I am the one who makes

 

things terribly bright and

dramatic when they need to be.

 

Like when I spill myself a

little at sunset. Night after

 

night you dream of me. One day

you will wake up properly,

 

and there I will be, at last.

Your new and endless climate.

 

Don’t look at me; I don’t compose

any kindertotenlieder.
