So Little

“Light is a narrow band of electro- magnetic wavelengths lying somewhere between ultraviolet (short wavelengths) and infrared at the long end.”

—Richard Dawkins

We know that our redeemer lives—

so many “knowing” claims.

The world is full of certainties

for which one kills or maims.

We see just a little of the light—

mere slice of what is here—

so maybe less of right-or-fight

when so much is unclear.

—Robert M. Stanley
