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
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.
