Flicking on a little switch - electricity

surges somehow out of darkness into light – !kapow!

my room ignites in sunshine, even

throwing shadow out from ghostly pillows.

How I trust that switch - and how I’d love a key,

or gizmo, shocking realization;

illuminating (simply by touching a button)

personal power, light and clarity!

The bugger is - it’s not like that;

I can’t locate a switch for insight

or a tool transforming sense.

Give me, O give me, awareness

so that irises flex and my waggling tongue

is led by a heartbeat thudding through chambers of truth.
