expansion: (noun)

  1. the state or quality of being expanded.
  2. the act or process of expanding.
  3. an expanded, dilated, or enlarged portion or form of a thing


a seeping, my self has 
unfolded in bloom, swelled to a mass, unfurling with 
firetipped fingers traveling over farms, boroughs, state lines
to the waistband of your jeans.

the world is larger than your longest map 
yet
when a little girl in Argentina drops a dish you 
feel the vibration from a thousand miles away.

i am never more than two inches from you, a mushroom cloud-
my head is expanding, my bones are creaking-
and my heart is contracting like a fist.
