Ultraviolet

I’ve heard you can go blind from this 

but I decided to stare at the sun,

after…

behind my eyelids,

darkness broke

into overlays and auras ultraviolet 

quivering 

around a green corn moon,

bristles of dog hair fear rising, chasing solar filaments until the orb acquiesced 

and drifted back into darkness,

behind my eyelids,

and after all that

I didn’t even bother to go 

blind
