Written from the point of view of a character in the novel Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon. Lou is autistic and has trouble with focus.


Light is dancing sometime
Patterns on the mobile
I lose myself in time
Only for a short while
Silver gold and blue and green
Bring my focus nearer
can be clearer

Nothing can be clearer
Now I must rewind
I lose my self in time
In my own mind

Find yourself
Why don't you know yourself
Why don't you find yourself
Why can't you see yourself

I need to find the speed of dark.

Light moves at just one pace
Through a vacuum steady
Before the light flows into place
The dark is there already

Nothing can be clearer
Now I must rewind
Ignorance long strides ahead
Knowledge follows far behind
