I write to liberate, to ignore
superficial symmetries, to break
open the camera, go behind
the vision, see the angles of light
as they penetrate silver film
or thousands of pixels of luminous
impulses, spectrum, imprinting
memory, photons in waves
many invisible to the eye, organizing
the seemingly inexpressible
in bits, particles hammering
sense’s foundation, dark drum
of immutable principles, law of being
laid bare, pounded by lyrical beats
intensified imaginative energy focused
to splinter essence, free pieces of me.
