Nox 

Poetry of shadow, umbra et lux.

Nec mortem effugere quisquam nec amorem potest: Omnes una manet nox…

And I write and I believe.

Veritas tenebras mea,
Tenebras lux mea:
Transit lux, umbra permanet.
Transit lux, veritas permanet.

Omnes una manet nox…

The quiet in the cracks expands,
The swelling of what was once concrete,
The silence in the streets—

Non omnia moriar.
