Ambient Light

When God said –

Let there be light –

It was an all surrounding

Tour of wave and particle.

But He found

At night

Especially after the fall

Just Adam and Eve

They and their bodies

That sparking

That glowing after

Was just not enough

To show the glory of the world

Between sunset and rise

Ambient light not nearly enough.

It was all there was

Until that fit of pique 

Over the side of applesauce

For that night’s dinner

Can you believe this crap –

He said

And lightning was born.
