Poem 4/100: The Pause


Whirring into space

Thoughts fire

Like comets into

The Cosmos


Landing God knows where

Literally

(God knows these things)


They bubble up

Like the chest-burning

Carbonation of a room temp

LaCroix


Fizzing and foaming

Like a rabid, eye-glowing

Trash panda in the

Greasy back alley

Behind the burger joint


Then comes the inhale

The exhale

The inhale

The exhale


[Pause]


The oxygen

The carbon dioxide

The slow

And steady

Rhythm

Of

The breath

And the

Reassuring

Thump / Thump / Thump

Of

The Heart

Composing

Her symphony

Of

Life


Whirring halts

Bubbles burst

Foam disintegrates


And the quiet

Descends


With just

Enough

Time


To

Bring

It

All

Back Together


Just

Enough

Time


To

Bring

It

All

Back


Together


Just

Enough

Time


To

Bring

It


All


Back


[Pause]


Together
