(the point in spacetime when coalescence of self completed)
(inviting many to celebrate, receiving one
decorations and cake
like a slash to the face)
(existent then)
(behold the gift
this necklace of blood crystals
dappled with shimmering teardrops
it dazzles as it chokes)


i want to see the sea

in other words, self consciousness
at the boundary of individual throbbing into collective
like order seeks to inseminate itself into high entropy
on land, knowing the empty sky by its radiation
a pair of seagulls circling manhattan towers seek and seek
