If This Is Any Art For Which You Care

Its About Waking In The Middle Of The Night And Having To Write It All Down

I See A World



the aim of the writer
the artist is
to stop time

its an impossibility
an insanity
but how we try

its a way of seeing
transfixing the eyes
focus of steel
honed
sharpened
razor thin

I am here
this is what I saw
my photograph made by my eyes
and filtered though my heart
see it
and wonder at what I saw
how its colored by who I am
and where I have been

in a world over-run
by ants of people
I'd like to remember
my vision singular
and telescope outward
from what's here within

I see a world
magnified
detailed
some days
I no longer feel
in
