Distance to Anywhere ~ Would You Like Coffee With That?

Distance to Anywhere
Would You Like Coffee With That?

                                                                                      City of the Sun ~ Philip Brent Harris

~~~~~

What does it matter,
How I feel,
What I do?
Infinitesimal or less
In the list of all
Things, stuff, piffle,
Merely a passing moment.
A falling leaf,
An ant’s call to battle,
Depth of the ocean,
Distance to anywhere,
Near or far.
All different,
All the same.
Do you remember
When you were here
Before,
When you were here
After?
Not reincarnation,
Not in the sense you think.
Atoms, stars and galaxies,
Everything you imagine,
Throw in the kitchen sink.

And still,
You cannot imagine,
Encompass it all
In this meager
Sack of flesh,
Which is within
All,
Which contains
All.
Every bit,
Every moment,
A connection,
A reflection.
What you think,
Think you see,
All true,
All a lie.
Incomprehensible,
Impossible,
Remarkable,
Incalculable;
Have a piece of π.
