Mole’s Valentine (for David)

In our time human beings are moles
clawing their way through hard darkness
toward an invisible light within
a light they know must be there
because the darkness is so bright
as if it swallowed the light
which is now slowly eating
the darkness from inside
of course between these two
a million colors are stranded
left to suffer every wave and weather
so the light gets used to sacrifice
and the darkness shows no mercy
until the moles grow eyes and see
gathering the light around them
with their darkness hands
