about

One day, some years ago, when I was in cold, cold Minneapolis in the dead of winter, I looked up at the sun shining in the sky. Despite the frigid temperature, yea, even there and then, its brightness seemed all-powerful. I imagined an ecstatic chant, executed before a ritual of self-immolation, by a denizen of the planet Mercury. Mercury, the closest planet to the sun, has its hot side, facing the sun, and its cold side, facing away from the sun. The ritual occurs at the end of a life when the being moves from the cold side of Mercury to the hot side, where they are engulfed in the fiery fury.

from Mercury, a view of the Sun

so great are you, oh sun!
now, my time has come
as proud citizen of Mercury
to see you, to feel you
let me, in this last act
immolate myself
in your blinding light.
devour my flesh
take it deep within you
let it become part
of the all-creating, all-sustaining, all-destroying
being that is you.
