Thirst for Knowledge by Philip Berry (Lucent Dreaming Issue 5)

When they spoon the night into your eager mouth,
Do the stars taste salt, or sweet?
Do stray pastel planets
Shoot straight to the pleasure centre,
Or fall lifeless down your throat?

And moments before your eyes turn black –
Redundant windows to an obsessive mind –
Do you see how far
We still have to go?
