All of a sudden my skin was on fire,
every millimeter of me a crudely sawn off electrical wire
Who ever knew that a body could be so vast?
that there could be so much hurt & ecstasy dancing together along the same nerves.
Even the air has presence,
every breath a new current
How can all of this be held together?
How to people not break apart
explode on impact,
how do all of our atoms hold themselves together amidst all of this trembling and colliding and burning?
How can people bear to hold each other?
this being alive, is full of pain that is too beautiful to abandon,
it is so saturated with beauty that is too painful to hold onto.
I finally understand,
why people compare our bodies to universes;
the heavens are reflected in all of our
and barely coherent chaos.
A sudden fire,
a crudely sawn of electrical wire;
that hurt and ecstasy dance together.
amidst this trembling,
is so saturated
that our bodies
are barely coherent chaos.
