If night were not night but the absence of night 
an event but not the same event twice then I would be I 
and this would be nice very nice as I write I write 

you down you write me back I write you a letter you write 
me one better and there go you and here come I 
where you and I may meet may fight but here there is no night 

and I see you see me and if then better than if one might 
if one white had struck all yellow and blue and black and green 
and all rolled into a ball of white yet here there is no night 

here you read the letter as written not the night 
as performed and this would be nice you and I and nothing between 
the same event twice a ball of white as I write I write.
