On Loan

Where does insight come from,

where do answers lie

A mockingbird to mimic truth

in streaks across the sky

The echoes of tomorrow

retreat into the past

As crumbs from where it all began

form a new repast

The light belongs to no one

all live within its glow

To claim its brightness title banned

—and lease what can’t be owned
