just between you and me....

just between you and me
there are billions of cubic feet
of atmosphere, miles of wire,
satellites and untapped infinite
energy resources. birds sleeping.
stones and stone within stones,
rivers, falling leaves, animals
dying, insects eating, gas pumps
pumping, left feet braking, street
lights winking out inexplicably.
toilets flushing, cel phones ringing,
awkward first dates and sex for money.
maybe there's time and maybe there's space.
one thing's certain, that's uncertainty.
these words are a dream. the space between
your mind and these words is essentially
non-existent. call it a conduit. peace....
