Levity of Mind

the way of the mind is levity
getting always lighter and lighter
for all these hundreds of thousands 
of years and now so far away 

it thinks
its self 
a part 

it thinks itself to pieces
and pieces its self apart

it has thought itself into
other planets, other orbits
around other suns of thought
other sources of seeing itself
its pieces
its self pulls 
it apart

don't participate
but dangle
in odd angles
of mobile meaning

our sense of tense is 
tenuousness at rest while
our tense itself is senseless

tensile strength is useless
for holding all this together
