EVERYTHING ONE POEM AT A TIME

This poem

used to be longer,

used to contain

all the words,

the marching band,

a sleeping tiger,

 

but

 

a page is like

a block of marble

on the verge of change,

each poem sculpted

from it

to present

Everythingness

in its Relativeness

one poem,

one word,

one sleeping

tiger

at a time.
