Every Vantage Point Proffers a Keyhole

catfish breaching
glistening waves
of Carroll Creek

new age hippies
dance in
bell bottom daze

with war vets
in wheelchairs
near their usual spot

shea butter
melts into eyes

some scenes are too
terribly awesome

to witness fully
so how could I capture
a deadpan snapshot in a poem?

dissolve continues

particle fragments
component isolates

every piece playing its perfect part

it couldn’t be any other way
else it wouldn’t be at all

every choice
every decision
every step
every righteous action
every shameful misdeed
every success
every regret
every birth
every death
every flux in the program
every breath of the simulation

if it weren’t for the dive-bombing duck
splashing soft in forgiving waters
God would be forgotten behind the veil
