A simple measurement
can make a man
lose himself; a blurring, no more
than a grainy smudge
a scant 7.34mm long
this rice-grain, seven weeks old
with one hundred and twenty nine
heartbeats per minute
all this, from a mere sesame-seed of a heart

A steaming cup
Snowflakes on the lawn
The soft spark of contentment
Where Cats Go.I'm the girl who inhaled the world.Where Cats Go. by winterbelle
Lucid dreaming backwards, kicking rocks
Skipping rocks, stacking boulders
Building the earth's womb,
I planted dreams.
The pyramids; triangle hips, sleep apnea; her postmortem floods and quakes
Nine months later,
I placed pennies over her eyes, Inhaled. Exhaled-
And heaved out mounds of soil, wet vines,
Some dark, cavernous underground.
My ribs choked and packed Creation. My temper split Pangaea
And by Sunday I had left Earth to live with the Cats.
