BETWEEN THE TREES
(5/28/17)

there
is something
unseen
out there

an earthy
dark matter
that holds
this tenuous
reality
together

all
of the flash

all
of the apparent
visual value

is actually
insignificant

a distraction

from that
which is important

say God
if you will

but millennia
of images
will crowd
the thought process
along
with that name

close
your eyes
instead

really

all the way

and take
a good look
around

behold
the aphotic face
of infinity
