uncertainty principle

 

 

because in this universe we are always

moving. father returns with peace in his

 

footsteps as though the clouds didn’t just

cry on his shoulders. brother talks about

 

his castle, his home; of the school & hospital

he built & how he turned his hometown into

 

tunnels where wishes are birthed. i write self

into a poem of vague meanings: boy with

 

camera, muse, guilt & some stolen dreams

from a mother who opens up with tears

 

every day she relives her childhood. because

in this universe we are never static. from the

 

mirror where we worked in a white hall,

choking with ties & white gowns; from

 

the road side in boots and protective coats,

helmet worn over heads. because in this

 

universe we can’t tell simultaneously where

we are & where we are headed to.
