In The Brightness of All Our Names 

I picked a blade of grass 

From the root of the Earth’s molten core 

And through the tiniest home that this blade occupied, 

A ray of bold shot into the sky

I trailed the ray up to the night 

And saw the star it claimed 

I took another blade from the ground 

And then another 

And one more 

And soon, my name was written in the sky 

I ran to my friend to show him my art 

And he too wrote his name in the sky 

Then he wrote the name of she who keeps his heart 

He wrote and she wrote

We wrote until there was no grass left 

And the sky was rid of night 

And in the brightness of all our names 

I lost my fame 

And I lost the grass
