empty (2011)


"Imagine putting a bowling ball in the center of a city and then scattering ten peas
around the rest of the city and you have some idea how empty an atom really is."
From Atoms to Quarks, James F. Trefil

there then at the deepest center of each of us
we are that thing that is essentially empty

proton neutron electron all rattling around
inside each cell of us like a prayer for others

and we become attracted to this emptiness
that is all that matters at the core of everything

and the radiation of you and your emptiness
lights every particle of me in orbit and electric

the nucleus of me sits by the millions in you
central and constant as the belief in split atoms
