Story cubes poem #1 – The vegetal show

“Look, look how it grows,
How fast, and soft, and strong,”

(The ad reads : take a trip back
to days of oceans below earth
and distance and waiting
and smaller designs)

“How naturally out of sequence
Beautifully out of shape
Fumbling around its own stumbling pattern”

(Possibly ever-elusive – I cut Dad off
in thought, where he cannot chide me
for an attempt at imposing
concepts against temporality)

“Wonderful ! And to think
They were all indifferent to it
Back then !”

I stand – stranded – vacant witness
to the revived phenomenon
the museum audience in awe
stirring something which –
is not remembering.

That shall wait – until we buy
the never-the-same-in-the-morning figurine
from the souvenir shop,
under the fiberglass dome

– If stones could still be plucked
from street soil,
no doubt I would dream
of smashing it
and not even
count the pieces


The single die gave me a tree.


Au commencement était le verbeux.
