No 02-687How long has it been?
How many hours has gone by since last?
Gazing upon the stars it realizes that it has done this for so long that it is buried in sand up to its knees of sturdy metal. Who is it again? Did it have a name?
Slowly moving its head, taking the stars away from its vision for the first time in what seems like for centuries, it looks down on its hands. They're made of metal, nuts and bolts holding them together. Metal plates over all the cables and wires crawling inside of it like intestines.
It flexes one finger, two fingers, after a while it moves them all, still observing them with great interest. The stars twinkle from their everlasting home in the sea of heaven, shines from their positions in the black empty space. It moves its fingers.
Within what could be countless of hours, it starts moving one of its legs, the sand falls of one grain at the time. It moves, taking its first step, it wobbles, uncertain if it should continue or not. But something in its head tells it
Of Snake Charmers and TreesThere are mathematicians
that calculate the gravitational
pull that tethers us to one another,
teasing sense out of the fabric
of Time and Space like
wizened snake charmers.
I thought them so horribly
unromantic, searching for
logic amidst wildflowers--
reasoning being reason enough
to put one foot in front
of the other each day.
True beauty lay printed
on petals and pages,
where I delved for pearls;
the patterns in the pathos
intriguing me into each
rising of the sun.
I do not remember when
it occurred to me that
without fractals there would
be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
