Sleeper is a Player

Last time I entered the hill and saw the artificial light source found it
made of long fluorescent tubing and a little painful on the eyes feeling of exposure
contained, it was unkind light outside, it was joyous and still raining
The double source of the moon way off making the horizon a certain glow and then from behind, the artificial the colors bright in a patch just beyond my reach
Then there are the fleshy moments of disruption and revelation of surface and matter the X points unseen developed into familiar not quite memory
