let me out or destroy me

by Matthew Sharp

in the small moments
i create texture by removing the measuring devices
seconds into nano seconds
into the unconscious rolling out of the entire element of time
so even a brief moment with you is better than none.

: let me out or destroy me :

in the lull
i create calloused absence by adding endless measuring devices
minutes seem like hours, days like eons
into an unconscious stillness unable to bridge the gap between point A and point B.
So even a brief moment away is better than none.

Yes. Whenever possible...that "unconscious rolling out of the entire element of time"--that is the key to everything... and to this poem-- a wonder. The matching stanzas and concepts--hourglass perfect in construction and effect.
