time. space. {continue…um.}



let’s fold the map
and melt the clock,
unstitch the stars.

if we could only
open up this sky
like a big ol’ jar.

it’s all relative
this swirl of now

and then and where
and when
and why.
Prompted by Toads

  1. I love the title and the dali-esque play with words and thought streams.

  2. Fabulous title!❤️ Your poem makes me feel like floating into the air!❤️

  3. This swirl of now… that’s exactly what it is. I wonder though if there are any maps.

    unstitch the stars. what a great line ~

  8. ‘melt the clock’ reminded me of Dali’s painting called, if I remember correctly Soft Clock or Persistance of Memory.

    Very effective similes, and I especially like the jar of sky.

    I sometimes think relativity is a way for science to get back to a reality we all experience subjectively.
