THE GREATEST CREATION
God: for a moment let’s imagine sound
as the conductor of wind and heat,
and the universe-city constantly swells
while magnetic beings collide.
it is the force behind this magnetism
that is commonly noted as power.
humans have come to adopt
the practice of thoughtful breath:
a sacred ability that morphs
the mind-body into a metronome;
hales of air affect lungs and heart,
giving blood this hot oxy.
then the body feels high,
and the mind thinks,
about its environment
and also itself,
so much so that it begins to talk:
thoughts crashing between chords,
ink staining starch boards,
momentous momentum manifesting
archaic noise into sharpened sound:
Language the paragon of Creation.
