You break the cameras of the paparazzi
Because, you tell them, there’s nothing to see:
That’s why John Lennon didn’t believe
In Zimmerman: he fell into a frenzy,
King Kong battled the dinosaur.
And out of these realms of darkness, illusion
Battling the poisonous gas of bitter
Nihilism, collapses. Fusion
Out of that collapse, a piercing
Point of light, a nova stains
The sky, the shadows are bleached,
The clouds shine beneath the airplanes.
