highlighter

(More readable version)
 

my books are my mind

spilled out in pages
scattered across shelves

i am sifting through my ancestors
the sacred and profane
remembering and forgetting

i am becoming

my path is a line of green
highlit fire

I am a thousand flames
words
called forth
from the black ink

to think
is to divide:
each letter
infinitesimally smaller:
the beating of a heart

god
i love the fire
pressed through me
called forth by the word
into difference

yes i am
fractal
infinitely recursing
into flaming colors

books within books
are written
as my soul exults
in the infinity
of spaces
between words
