POEMS: Metaphysics / Light / The Eel




Quieting consciousness,
reclaim neglected detail,
fill the imprecise cavity,
with careful observation.


Worlds in other dimensions,
existing in membranes,
bubbles or vapor forms
that parallel this one


Space and form in time,
indivisible, mirror an infinity
within a glass cosmos


Shaping every imaginable form
because of a butterfly flap
in a speck of dark matter
in a snowflake,


a matrix whose existence is a metaphor
invisible but there
This proves the existence of other dimensions
as photons exit the lazar glare.
