crow outpaces the clock ~after Ted Hughes and Werner Heisenberg

time is the abyss, the bridge, the long fall

time is the staunch resistance to now

time is a lagging indicator

measured cold new

grows old waiting for time

to catch up and still

no one understood

what Heisenberg meant

those 2.6 billion moments ago,

on a trajectory mocking the arc

of the crow,

. nothing

upon nothing below

for Caitlin and her boyfriend, Abstract Algebra

The Grate

in a moment
his hands were gone
he found himself in the water
water and bread / the grate
time was stronger than stone
go, look through the key-hole and see
she was red silk with fiery eyes
