Three eyes, blind (a poem)

Thoughts. Collisions.

At the snap of a finger
the scene changes

A slap
a clap
an echo

a microtonal shift
in the frequency of indifference

a crack
in the moment of quietude

Enter doubt
followed by uncertainty
conflicting expectations

and a decline
in the gross national product
of Ecuador

Time flaunts its elasticity—
no time is all
all-time is nothing

‘it’ll be over before you know it’
becomes the proposition
that must be agreed to
before you are allowed to proceed

You awaken at the snap of a finger
to this unfamiliar scene
