Ignorance Day



of the unacknowledged

screams across

morning’s final umbrage.

Dissident dawns.

Long derided requiems

seeking appointment.

Ignorance akin to slander.

What must it take

to wrench eyes skyward?

To taste

of the burning fascination

that is the incumbent star.


as the day is mocked.

Heads turned

face down

into a false light.

Solaris slips,

weeping into the West,

while the moon

paces the sky,


Another soul of apathy.

Disregard for reflected glow.

Darkness finally descends

on the doomed.
