zoom in//zoom out

zoom in;

you’ll find

cries

and chokes.

oozing

turpentine

emotions

and

footsteps

foot clicks

tiptoes

of people below

and above

and all the way

around

with heads

buzzing like

bees just

like you

 

 

crack open

their bones

to find marrow

consisting of

spider-like

clingy

thoughts more

like knives

in our eyes

but anyways

you get the

gist,

zest of

preoccupations

worries

past

future

past

we go back

and forth

on the

merry go round

 

 

zoom out;

 

 

we unpeel the world

like a clementine

sweet and

raw and forgiving

 

 

zoom out;

you realise

there was no gate

you thought you were

trapped behind

draw dots

spots

ink blots

i’ll show you:

it’s all us,

these freckles

on paper-

it’s all us-

tiny but

crowned with

a softly thudding

heart of hearth

constantly

warm, expanding

beyond skin

 

 

you’ll find

this warmth in you,

in your kin,

to be found in

the secretly symmetrical

leaves

the knees of

trees

and thieves

of wind

so,

it’s always there

this warmth gushing

out of every faucet

out of every locket

 

 

zoom out and out;

this azure orb

of ours,

or shall i say,

we come out of this

azure orb.

 

 

hidden sweetness,

delight

you’ll find in the

way we merge

with the oceans

storms

winds

dirt

birdsongs

whale cries

time going

clockwise

implies

we’re waiting

for ticking

and tocking

but all that

tick

tock

ticks

when only

you zoom in

 

 

and only then

do you capsize

the orb

with fixation

obsession

on the bundle

of nerves

we confine

to define us

 

 

but zoom out

realise

this sphere

floating in space

bubbles with

brewing ardor

and adoration

for what it all

is:

these

incapsulated

expressions

of one occurrence

 

 

nestled

between the

crevices of

this fabric,

a flame

bursting from

this sweet

spring of

creation.

a miracle

blazing,

wildly alive:

you
