on heart strings drawn at dawn

liccle-itsty-bitty bits & increments 

all along lines ( i’ve drawn ) of longtitudes & platitudes

something crawls quietly minding its own bizziness

sickle instrument wrought in criss-crossed hairs – 

 raised whispers shrink to focus

into being

                                      something multipliesminimalised



indistinct insects aren’t more minuscule than this

abstract concept

it’s simple — a note a mote i wrote-un-written just

folded over a thousand-trillon times in

a chime of homeopathic pearls of petals

a curl of soapy marble mumbles smitten in

to sputters dotted with pollens arrested in syrupy amber still

wet & wept taunt & thick with scents reminiscent of what? still hot

still small

a cerebral cortex stretched &

strung along high-wired spirals & straightened memories slip-wrecked

vibrating        sweetly       minutely       brightly

a distinct reveille

  a cell’s reverie


somewhere something twangs & swells

cracks at its invisible shells & sprouts its mythical wings


it is lost on dusts & mists

of songsitude unplentitudes ( i’ve created ) understated it’s     .



not huge at all 

as it happened 

did you spot it?

an imperfect ball de-magnified

as speck of ink on a brink

of extinction

so microscopic was it

did you miss it?


not a haiku
