termites’ demise

the morning brings
– as it does –
yet not so often
as one might wish,

sunlight.

last night,

the termites
in their tunnels

my tunnels

seemed invincible

happily digesting
my fortitude
with barely a notice

but

just a few minutes of
exposure
to the full rays
of the sun

would
kill
them
all

if only I could
turn myself
inside
out

and hit the body
with a tremendous,
very powerful light

or suppose
you brought the light
inside the body

through the skin
or some other way.

truth can be found
in the darkest of places

let the sun
shine in.
