Knocking Holes in the Darkness

Oh, the interview with Rev. Samuel “Billy” Kyles on NPR this morning . . . one of the best pre-Martin Luther King, Jr. Day meditations ever. The line, "knocking holes in the darkness," gives such a vivid picture.

The image, attributed to Robert Louis Stevenson, who, as a child, described what he saw outside his sickroom window--a man lighting the street lamps, does a lot more than that for me, too. And, I guess it did for Tom Waits when he wrote it in "Downtown Train."
