Joseph Salvatore Aversano

Spells Against Night Blindness

night if the pupil dilates    into a new moon    night if one can sit in it
                          unseen    night if it is hummed    from the inside
                                                             of the chest    out sounding
                                                                                         the dark


each side of
the mountain needed

for there to be a mountain
side of the valley needed

for there to be
a vale
