11-27 Between Space

Between Space


Neurotransmitters sparking

between neurons across synaptic gaps,

flotsam of images and ideas are

naked boys peeing at each other

in yellow arcs.


Behind shuttered eyes, meditation

leadens mind’s flow to a series of stills—

deer’s eyes, beam struck—

and stalls undertows of neurobabble


until: between     waves

and           words             space                      stretches

and                   calm                             rests

as             all       –         like             bees        into           a           hive

at         dusk       –         shrinks           to             a               point

where               even                 poetry               extinguishes

and               finally               one                can                                   listen

to                     the                             whisper                                     of
