I have watched mothers lose
their children, and children lose their mothers. I am tied
by my toes to a loop
which can be seen in cafes and morgues -
the breast-feeding, the burying, the everything is all
on a string. I have heard about
women and children thinking they are unlimited,
I am unlimited, too, if
the two ends of a circle never meet.
My lover once closed his heart off from everyone, and I
never understood until now
that you do not
have to open up in order to be full inside. I still can
water his flowers, even the weeds
and he never has to open his eyes to see and
he never has to open his heart
to feel. I understand that sometimes it is better to just be.

Circumference thou Bride of Awe
Emily Dickinson

1620

Circumference thou Bride of Awe
Possessing thou shalt be
Possessed by every hallowed Knight
That dares to covet thee

A poet set upon pushing the limits of poetry
is condemned to push the limits of some people's patience.
Fuck 'em.

When Cogs—stop—that’s Circumference
Emily Dickinson

633

When Bells stop ringing—Church—begins
The Positive—of Bells—
When Cogs—stop—that’s Circumference—
The Ultimate—of Wheels.

The circumference

The Dimensions
     of her heart.

The circumference
       of her soul...

Circumference
Emily Dickinson

883

The Poets light but Lamps—
Themselves—go out—
The Wicks they stimulate—
If vital Light

Inhere as do the Suns—
Each Age a Lens
Disseminating their
Circumference—

Diameter of the circumference determines its impact
Amitav Radiance

The ripples of your actions has far reaching effects
Diameter of the circumference determines its impact
Result of the actions comes ricocheting, caught unaware
Actions determine what your reaction to life will be

The minute Circumference
Emily Dickinson

967

Pain—expands the Time—
Ages coil within
The minute Circumference
Of a single Brain—

Pain contracts—the Time—
Occupied with Shot
Gamuts of Eternities
Are as they were not—

He carries a circumference
Emily Dickinson

1663

His mind of man, a secret makes
I meet him with a start
He carries a circumference
In which I have no part—

Or even if I deem I do
He otherwise may know
Impregnable to inquest
However neighborly—
