TRUTH OF THE MATTER

 

There is order out of chaos, and there is order

 

out of another order, so agree physicists

 

and demons from the sculptured capitals of Vézelay

 

put there by fears of the fearful for their souls,

 

an additional illusion like additional lives

 

and spontaneous lizards from fires.

 

And we know white space is neither and the page,

 

skin really, only appears to be pulp and chlorine,

 

that words can bend light, and one whiff of alphabet starts it.
