It is an honour to be an acolyte
in the temple of the knowns.
We are surrounded by mystery.
In the secret religion of the knowns
We are given awareness and knowledge.
Darkness is knowledge. All mystery
Is in the light. We journey underground
To smell, taste, hear and touch the dark.
Each level of a known is a deeper darkness.
Light is so shallow and insipid.
I pray the dark becomes deeper
that I may be an absolute known.
