Getting Past The Crack

There is a gap in things. I first saw it quite long ago now. I was just a young man. It changed my life when I first slipped through the crack. On the other side is - censored - and I will never get there again it seems, because I have tried. Here we go again.

Getting Past The Crack

I need to slim down.

I see the crack but can't go
between the cold walls
in the shape I hold.
If I shift my shape to yours
and take your meaning
as my very own
then maybe I will just fit
and then I will squeeze
the dark out of things.

  1. I can tell you it will not be so. To take on another's shape is to reinvent darkness. It is to just fit between a thumb and forefinger and wait, ever so long, for the final squeeze. Someday I will be a hand, I will have fingers, and they will wave webs away. This is how the darkness will retreat.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
