Sides,that drift
with
***** walls.

This abode
of
Night time halls

Where some have
wept
Their one last call

The holder
stops
For one last fall
Where ever home may be.

I'm a 40% aqueous solution of earth
Water from below and
Water from above the firmament
Contained and compartmentalised
In self similar structures at various scales
From the unseen to the one you see as me.
I am like water:
I am tender, yet bold
Your thought is my container
How much of me can it hold?
Do not underestimate me;
enlarge the container
For I am a mystery yet untold.

I am like water:
I take the shape of your container
Your thought is that container
I am to you as you think of me
Look into me; I am a reflection of yourself.

I am like water:
I go to where I flow
And I flow to where I go
And I'll always find a path to follow.

I am like water:
I cannot be understood
For I am beyond your horizon
Shapen the container as you like,
it will never form the true shape of me
My true self is free — it cannot be contained.

—JIBRIL ABDULMALIK
How you see or think of me, reflects  how you behaviour or act towards me. Which in turn, I reciprocate.

You can literally manufacture it in a chemistry lab;
There are formulae and measurements of hormones that add up
To this supposedly tangible entity

A nicely brewed test tube
Of elaborately named chemicals

The very thing that makes you tremble in your skin,
That has caused wars and set ships assail
Confined to a liquid in a glass container

This globe has the definition and detail of a small portion of the earth.
Envision being trapped inside this alternate and encased world.
Now, walk outside and look around at what surrounds you.
Look at the dome that encases you.
Feel the floor of the earth.
Hear the reverberation.
Smell the disease.
Taste density.
Sense.
Lost.
No.
I.

The visual structure of the poem is designed to convey the feeling of contracting claustrophobia as well as give an insightful idea about our direct and peripheral sight.
