Dyson Sphere / by Will Ringland

In the deep hollows of space
I can build a sphere around the sun
to apportion the radiant energy,
joule by joule.

It is buffered by cool
and tenebrous mechanisms that
regulate the transfer of any glimmer 
between us.

Structural containment is critical.
If I yield, it will flare and
irradiate everything,
warming you without restraint.

And, oh, how we may grow so reliant
on the touch of light
unregulated and unbuffered
by space.
