  • The Second

    for the poet of this site of the same name

    the second passes by in the cross-hair,
    I didn't even understand it all. left lagging
    in this sunshine moment, I can spit up words
    toward the sun and moon, black sky and bird,
    I can fit myself into this tunnel, and so absurd
    I'd never get out if I couldn't get in? Or do I fit
    the place where wingbeats stop, and birdsong
    stiffens into the creases of the houses and trees
    until all of time, even memory, is just that
    one second?

    For one second, two seconds must feel like an eternity.

    What a great tribute.

      Exactly I am glad my feelings got across, I had only just realized the different meaning of the second's name, and wrote this right after!
      Thanks for stopping by and appreciating it! Peace
