Stream of Somethingness

Write as fast as you can

to escape your memories

waiting for you at the end of this very line

but if there is no line or sign or rhyme

then there’s no reason to end

or to be afraid

like a tightrope walker in the clouds

taking it step by step

knowing nothing

except for the feel of his feet beneath his wire

thinking that this is the feat that leads us all to infinity

that we’ll get to eventually

when we’re patient enough to see

beyond this universe

that rests in the dream of Vishnu and shake your head

and this kaleidoscope sends


and shapes indescribably into the seen and obscene

but these particles remain the same

and here we are

where we said

we’d never be

but as babies

we never conceived of

where we were

and where we would ever be.

      Writing is taking all the letters in the alphabet and shaking them up and then tossing them out on the page hoping the letters land in the right order. The next step is editing.
