" my fellow citizens

in that eternal Jerusalem",

do not weep

more than is necessary

for from chaos and darkness
all that can come into being

is the sun, moon, and stars

each with their own light
and orbit or rules

even if we are blind, sleeping,
or don't look upward

this happens
and we, the witnesses,

cannot control
the presence or absence
