time travel




i enjoy the crawl through
wormholes....
on off season -  evading the warmth of spring, a
dead poets
forewarning of a harbored rage, often shadowed by Poe
impersonators

best to wait on a late
fall migration or early winter - throw out some bait, a stray grasshopper
leg, a downed bee wing - vigilance
here vital
in  the transversing
of parallel universes - as losing
ones head a probability in need of serious calculation

personally,
i don't know if Hawking
agrees with Einstein on this theory of time travel
but i lie assured knowing the real
Poe does....(we have become bosom buds)
he called his voyage warped,
a chamber of horrors with the endless resounding of
tell tale hearts, tapping, tapping, and the disembowlment
of any rest or genteel de-
composition

    God. Loved this like I love all of the rest. We are all in our own parallel universes? I think we might be. Great great work.
