Phosphenes

I try to close my eyes
tight to the darkness,
as if I could make it darker,
but as hard as I try,
the light,
even behind my eyelids
continues in bursts
of technicolor,
as though
I had catapulted myself
into another universe
and now travel
at the speed of light
into a soundless vacuum
of nothing more
than thoughts that,
once I am back,
have opened my eyes,
will have to try
and assemble,
to make some sort of sense
out of all this current state
of meaninglessness.
