The Void

The Void

THE VOID

No space is
empty.

Technically,
there is no void,

and yet, somehow,
there is.

*

Time and space
may not be

linear,
but that is how

we perceive them
within our reality,

and until the time
comes,

that we learn to perceive
all dimensions

of time and space
at once,

then
we are stuck

in linear
time.

*

Within our limited
perception

we think we can see
the physical space

around us,
what we take up,

what we move about,
gaseous clouds,

walking through space
is what

we are.
Miracles.

it’s crazy that we don’t simply
dissipate,

that we even exist,
and yet

here we are living and breathing
taking up space

moving within it,
taking it for granted

and choosing
to spend our days

sharing some of this space
with other

seemingly gaseous
finite being

while in fact
we are that space

that we take up
the space is us,

we are only alive
in relation to this universe

that we occupy
and the space

isn’t ours,
it’s the other way around.

Once again
we tend to perceive

everything
backward.

Houston, Texas April 17
I’ll probably continue to tweek this poem, or maybe not.
