from Mental Fight by Ben Okri one of the best African writers.
An illusion by which we can become
A moment unremarked by the universe,
By nature, the seasons, or stars.
Moment we have marked out
Making a ritual, a drama, a tear
Domesticating the infinite.
Contemplating the quantum questions,
Time, death, new beginnings,
Regeneration, cycles, the unknown.
