Watching All The Movements – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Our life is a faint tracing on the surface of mystery, like the idle curved tunnels of leaf miners on the face of a leaf.” Annie Dillard

Watching All The Movements

Today I watched all the movements as 
I crawled into tunnels of elastic time
stretching out in a distortion, 
like neon in night rain, 
a looming weave of acidity and alkali, 
a rainbow of mixed emotion as thin
as rice paper with a shred of something
fragile about it hanging in the wind, 
as I navigated opposites, 
looking for the singular moment.
