Poem & Drawing: How Can We Not Admire

HOW CAN WE NOT ADMIRE

How can we not admire
emptiness especially when it’s

pregnant with superlative Light?

Explosively thrilling in its opening of our
perceptions from toe-tips to galactic

distances more numerous than
sand grains in a colossal

stretch of beach

that turns inside-out instantaneously
this world and all its gala self-

advertisements

to an interior smoother than conch-shell’s
mother of pearl and

more radiant than all of underwater
Neptune’s kingdom of diamond thrones and

glittering tridents of purest porphyry
