Poem & Drawing: 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-


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
(from The Match That Begins a Conflagration, in progress)
