Somewhere in the vastness it murmurs
It is not painful to look at the sun.
But it is.
It is painful to look at the sun.
It is not because of the heat, the gas, the sheer power, as has been decided.
It is because the eyes that live there do not want you looking back.
It is easy to create an entire existence if you are a brain.
So the illusion of pain, brightness, heat is easy.
To keep from seeing the eyes that do not want you looking back.
