I write this poem to prove me wrong

Though there is in science no positive proof

Listen: the lady-snail clings to the stem

beneath the temporary flower which shuts out sun

snoozing

Listen: the lady-jay huffs on the branch

the rocks beneath her stirring more than her dreamless blue

waiting

Listen: the lady-black-hair-red-satin-dress sings to the digital

eye that never sets nor hears what dances so striking before it

trying to destroy the ice of the iris

never changing

everything, everything in the world

is

and that’s about it

is and is and lies and lays waiting

for an end, supposably.
