Day 25

Don’t Know
Con/Jur/d, 4/25/2021

Not much left, he said
any grand gesture you’re
planning is smaller in size,
tiny contrasted to the light
shining on a small red rock  
on a silent planet, a swirling
sky, sound as
tremor, rumble, vibration
circling, a too-small Sun, 
whose outsized imprint,
causes a different leveling
in every,

rock, liquid, organism

ripples lightyears wide.

Despite knowing they’re
just words, barely a trace 
on a fractional surface of

objects, subjects, souls

trying unsuccessfully to
fill the infinite hollow,
in every,
direction, temporality, topology

you think knowing
will solve for an

unaskable, unknowable, unfathomable

Day 11 Response to Day 25 Don't Know


I feel the shudder
of time buzzing my being
belying balance
and forcing me to STOP
Get grounded

Still he pushes
and staggers me
with wobbly uncertainty.
