recognizing only a splinter

recognizing only a splinter
of a fragment of how
the observable
universe works, i am stuck
wondering if somewhere,
in the constellation
hydra
, someone has
looked out her window
for the last time, a witness
to the collision, ouroboros
.

in the memory

in the memory
bank, scarring
requires a good
dose of new
memories
fragmented for
fibers to even
imagine mending
the damage –
there’s no
anesthesia for
the procedure

when we finally

when we finally
fragment, the spirit
will lift
lightly, stretch
and curl new
muscles created
only for this springing
away
, a small
push
into the unknown
.

confined to a single

confined to a single
measure, a fragment
of notes seldom
appreciate the longer
phrase they make –
an eighth note three
measures away
is always
much more
of an eighth note,
and the whole
note over there
wears his fermata
with such
generous aplomb.
as the sentiment goes,
the notes are always
achingly sweeter
on the other side
.
