If it is not enough

If it is not enough, this passage of lugubrious atoms
standing as if there is no wall to silence the screams

If it is not enough, the morphologies of distance and
their formation of stars in the dark recesses of time

If it is not enough, those eschewings of sentences
which are like habits of the mind lulled into numbness

then the gradation of blue can be treated as shades
of violent greys and limpid yellows, then the fulfilment

of time’s unceasing gasps can be held in your fist
and stared at for a long time, as long as it takes.
