With Words, I See A World I No Longer Fit In


the aim of the writer
to stop time

its an impossibility
an insanity
but we do try

a poem is
a way of seeing
fixing the eyes
with focus of steel
honed
razor thin
stating:


I am here
this is what I saw
a picture developed through my eyes
and filtered though my heart

can you see it
and wonder at what I saw
how its colored by who I am
and where I might have been?

in a world over-run
by the ants of people
I'd like to remember
my visions
a telescoping outward
from what's here within

I see a world
in detail, magnified
that many days
I no longer feel
in
