G'nite

I choose the life nonfinite
my heart let to grit
only I rise to high might
only I am the shit

she bids me goodnight
dressed in veils of twilight
a cup of black cloud
from which my lips, pressed tight
drink hard and aloud

I live this brief nonfinite
as many of you do
only I rise to high might
only 'mong dozens of you

I lift my sights up once again
throat stretched tight, I nearly choke
was that a star that stirred just then?
a tourist of milky way stroke
the light makes my eyes now uncloak

Upon eternal trice I gazed
the darkness, of pearls she is free!
only am I, to power upraised
only am I, and thee?

only I, you see?

only I see
