To Owl: Caution

Far from Back Then
Far from atom instincts
Far from matter & antimatter

Far from Next
Far from being medicated
Far from signs & proclamations

Far from Now
Far from vessels of sorrow
Far from navigation

Older than this chain of light older
Than any notion any –
Where older than the first

Moment of –

There.

Once.

Unplotted
But carried through & perfumed
For every sense –

Beware the soul made fat
With ascent toward a
Known God.
