In the Multiverse where the Fairies Live

In the Multiverse where the Fairies Live 

There is no argument
About God or No-God
Mortality or intimations of eternity

It is this

Now
The literal moment
Wherein
One

Treads
(Yes! Can.)
(Yes! Does.)
Across

That stray sod
Of this earth
Into a world
Both

More generous
And slight
And is
Slant

Where everything dances
Like dust motes in air
Illuminated by late autumn afternoon sunlight
Shafting through a window slit

Where all the worlds waltz together
No argument between
Or betwixt
Possibility and probability

We can but dream.

  1. That word ‘slant’ as used here is brilliant. “Tell the truth, but tell it slant,” Emily Dickenson said… and that is what you always manage to do in your poetry, Bee.
