Poetic Interlude: Plumeria

plumeria

Once fragrant
Neighborly given
Displayed; humbled
Overwhelming the interior
Scent out; shelved
Literally
No more to figure

Poetic Interlude: Past Particle

A tale from the end of the Universe

The last particle
Torn asunder

Drifted farther

From anything
Before

Shredding

Silent

No companion
To share its dissipation

Not even consciousness
Remained to witness

Ultimate solitude

Preceded nothing


Inspired by this news story from August, 2015.

Poetic Interlude: Through Train Car Windows

An imperfect mirror
At 80 degree angles
Rounding underground curves
