The stardust male and female still flush with light
From exploding stars, seeding new possibilities, our true progenitors.

I.	Imagine a stack
Of razor blades
Bolted together
Polished edges
Forming a blunt mass…
Who would guess the

Through revealing keyhole
Finds an interior
Darker than any light.

No tax offices ransacked

They looked at me with pity
As if I still talked
To an imaginary friend
