One 1,000,000th of a Second




One 1,000,000th of a second

and a spoonful of nothing

weighing more

than a billion Pontiacs

and all the dogs

your family ever owned

combined, flowered

from the center

of the deep

and the dark


to give you

four elements

and a swirling heart…


and every respectable god

a splitting headache.
