    dotsContrary Telescopedots

    Time can be counted in milliseconds
    Pay attention
    To the cracks in the pavement
    Where the sand grains no longer held their cement

    The proverbial elephant
    Resides in a matchbox of contented intent

    And measure by micrometers
    The distance of hairs
    As a tiny mote floats into a sea of stars
    Still wondering where the hell you are
    Within the fluidity of atomic constructs
    Or thought
    To reach beyond all eternal
    With the tweezers of a contrary telescope

    So lost in the tiny vastness
    The insignificance evaluated by the little presumptuous
    Internal sees with a tunnel focus
    Discerns the explanatory pores through its magnifying glass

    Do not count the blades of grass
    Or imagine a beach to be anything more
    Everything else inconsequential
    Outside the front door

    The prodigal elephant
    Struggles inside the matchbox of its purpose

    While an entire universe contained within a single cell
    Remembers how to construct a flower
    And each breath is a hurricane
    Between the footprints of forever

    Time can be measured in dreams
    In all those forgotten hours
    Of sleeping
    Where the grains of thought no longer held, to their cement

    And wander upon the waters of one
    The unified electrical fields of creation
    With all the names it has born
    Still waiting for the sleepers to awaken

    The elephant inside a matchbox
