the quiet joys

carom of

comet and volcano--

incubus and succubus let loose--

three hundred million years to compress coal and jet--

from miners lamp to surgical glove

and air-conditioned space

in a blink

Starting with "carom"? Brilliant. Great word. Video works well with poem. And I noticed --taking a guess at first-- the syllabic structure.


Yes, 300 million versus our puny years of "civilization". Nice work.

Wonderful reflective piece (I must confess I needed to look up carom and that gives me a thrill! ;-) Very entertaining.


Enjoyed immensely! Thanks,
