treasures & fibers

how up close things become so much more
and so much less of what they are!
what delight to know that zoom
could make such a difference, and you
under my microscope,
fade and bleat
snap and break. it was my lens
at fault, but treasures & fibers become such oddities
and shells
seem like houses, which they are.

in the dance studio across the street, couples twirl like tornadoes
and my bare feet against the empty shells on the beach
crack the abandoned homes of living things which
is my fault, because I never look close enough

weighted, begging a change
afraid to be alone but with a glow
like i've got a holy plan
i put my trust in; from a distance
all things are lovely so let's
step back
