Veneratus

Veneratus

How far and wide and constant I have longed
to be sub-atomic and unnoticed, to be of such diminutive size
I could slip into a crack, crawl the universe and
survive, break out slowly
as a sapling, from its seed,

and realize that I have arrived in the Unknown’s heart,
shimmied my particles up an artery,
tumbled into the chambers where the beats, beat,
where the life, lives,

I wish I could.
