THE PARTICLE REMAINS

Image

 

Always alive,

In a particle of time,

 

The ripe and the rotten.

The virtuous.

The nefarious.

 

The tramp sleeping rough,

Under railway arches,

The collective despair of vagrants,

Souls destined to roam,

Lost yet immortal.

Their tenure in time absolute.

The lucky ones?

 

As to all others,

Rewind,

Fast forward,

You will find us here,

Locked in our particle.

 

It renders longevity irrelevant,

The particle is all there is to muse upon,

It has no final cause.

Only time is in perpetual motion,

The particle is its cherished fragment.

The particle is the only safe house there is.

 

Within the capsule both flesh and blood,

Desires, memories and accomplishments.

 

Matter never diluted,

The particle abides,

 

For some the simplicity of a broken heart,

For some tobacco,

For dreamers?

Whatever dreamers do.

All is kept from harm’s way.

 

Duration,

A concept easy to grasp,

Easier still to forget.

 

Yet the particle remains.

Bullet proof.
