To facts as unprovable as one's own death.


The distance a child travels,
tens of thousands of years,
one cell at a time.


The body is a memory palace.


As if,
just once, impossibly,
we'll catch the visible reflection
of what's invisible.


After thirty weeks,
quantum whispering: thought.


All love is time travel.


Before I knew a person can be a prayer.

From "Lake of Two Rivers"


The heart keeps body and spirit in suspension,
until density pulls them apart.


Like any sound, it goes on forever.
______________________

From "The Day of Jack Chambers"


You explained visual time,
how there's no weight without shadow.


How everything suspended stays temporal.
