Antinous for Everybody

To Pancrates and Panprosdexia on the twenty-fourth of the month

Some say that light came first, and some say darkness;
some say that darkness is evil and only light is good.
Some say that light can comprehend darkness
but darkness cannot comprehend light. I say
that light is fire, the fire of power, will,
desire, desiring to understand, understanding
to make known, knowing to unite. From you,
Pancrates, all power, all truth, all beauty,
came forth the one who, born and shaped in fire,
went forth into the darkness with total comprehension,
holy Panprosdexia, who seeks to lead all
to the light. May Panprosdexia light my darkness;
may Pancrates feed my fire; may the fire
and the darkness in me not be divided.
