Day 297 – Magnitude

Friday, June 24, 2011
Day 297
3:09 am


the human heart may become
a major constituent of

we, exist in the middle,

dust, particles, protons
separating from themselves,
we express intention to each
other in these terms…

energy, a faction that does
not settle like dust,
a grand fire onto itself,
when lit correctly

thirty times the smallest
visible particle,
thirty times tinier than
the human eye can fathom
a universe,

to know we are in the middle
of this scale, we are
overwhelmed by magnitude

until we return to the center,
somewhere around
to find there may be use


or when
it chooses to exist in

the fibers,
the bones,
the muscles,
the cells,
and the skin
